Charnock Hospital offers 21st. century Nephrology care under one roof. The prevalence of chronic Kidney disease has reached an alarming proportion now a days and in the End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) we have to arrange some sort of substitution therapy of Kidney function which is called Renal replacement therapy like Haemodialysis, Peritoneal dialysis and Renal transplantation. Backed up by an extremely comfortable and homely ambience,Charnock Hospital has an Advanced 20 bedded Dialysis Unit, supported by 2 stage RO water and with High end Fresenius 4008S and advanced 5008 machines. The unit is capable of efficiently handling :
• Double Pass Reverse Osmosis

The state-of-the-art dialysis unit of the Hospital is having most modern and sophisticated hemodialysis machines and water treatment plant and is manned by Full time Doctors and Nephrologists. In addition, the whole unit is governed and monitored by international protocols and safety standards. It also has an automated dialyser washing machine to minimise the chance of human error.
