Genesis of the Project:

Dialysis is one of the first technological innovations in medicine and the only treatment for kidney failure that does not involve expensive and often very difficult transplant. Dialysis allows a patient with end stage organ failure to live long, healthy and productive life.

By co-operating together, Rotary Bangalore North West & Rotary Bangalore South West will be able to help a Hospital with good Dialysis facility operating on a very low cost basis, to enable the hospital to serve poor and needy patients get benefit of routine dialysis. Rangadore Memorial Hospital is one of the very few hospitals in Bangalore offering facilities for Dialysis at a very reasonable price. They charge only for the cost of consumables required for the dialysis. As against Rs. 750 (US$11) charged by this hospital, the Government hospitals charge about Rs. 1,100 (US$16) and hospitals in private sector charge between Rs. 2,000 to Rs. 3,000 (US$30 to 40). All their overheads and other costs are funded by Shankara Foundation, a charitable organization which owns the property where the hospital is located as well as all other expenses. The hospital also receives donations from many large companies from their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funds and also from individual donors. The hospital also carries out free dialysis for really poor patients and this form about 25% of their total number of patients. Most of their dialysis machines have been donated by various charitable organizations.

The Hospital has at present 50 dialysis machines out which 10 are exclusively for women patients. They are constructing a new building exclusively for dialysis with a capacity to locate 100 dialysis machines. They will be shifting all their existing 50 machines as well as additional new machines to this modern state-of-the-art facility. They have already got all back-up facilities to serve 100 machines, like main power supply, 600 kva generator backup, 150 kva UPS additional backup, RO water supply, etc. The building will be ready by end of August 2019.

With 14 machines proposed by us, the hospital will allot one floor in the new building exclusively earmarked as Rotary wing with Rotary logos, etc. Sustainability: There will be a five year warranty on all machines for repairs and maintenance. And Kidney Foundation of Bangalore will provide medical services at Rangadore Memorial hospital, Bangalore India
