The Government of Belize announced today that it will be expanding the hemodialysis programme to cover more than twice the number of patients with end-stage renal failure. According to the released issued from the Office of the Prime Minister, the Ministry of Health will contract K.H.M.H., Loma Luz Hospital, Miguel Rosado Dialysis Center, and Dialysis del Caribe to provide two dialysis sessions per week per patient and the patient will be required to pay for the third session. The ministry has evaluated and certified that these establishments have met acceptable standards for quality care.  There are currently fifteen patients registered with K.H.M.H. while sixteen are presently on the programme at La Loma Luz. An additional six patients will be transferred to La Loma Luz from Dialysis del Caribe because these patients live in the San Ignacio area. The Miguel Rosado Dialysis Center will remain with its sixteen patients and Dialysis del Caribe will have be left with thirty-five patients.  The contracts will be signed by October eighth.
