Paphos hospital’s kidney unit ‘on schedule’

A new haemodialysis unit at Paphos general hospital is expected to be ready in October next year, as construction work progressed as scheduled, the unit’s director Lakis Yioukkas said on Monday.

According to the contract, the €4.7m project is scheduled to be completed 18 months after it started.

The new unit is expected to solve the chronic problems faced by kidney patients in the Paphos district and cover its needs for at least the next 15 years.

The building is being constructed east of the hospital and will be connected to it via corridor.

It will be a three-storey building with an area of 2,100 square metres.

The ground floor will host a reception area, examination rooms, and four haemodialysis stations for short-term cases. It will also have two stations for patients with infectious afflictions who will be able to access it through a separate, discrete entrance.

Twenty-five treatment stations will be created on the first floor while the third one will have facilities for medical personnel.
