Johns Hopkins Aramco Healthcare (JHAH) has unveiled a state-of-the-art hemodialysis treatment area to accommodate all JHAH registered patients requiring dialysis. The first patients were welcomed into the new treatment area on April 7, just five months after the initial task force meeting to plan and execute the project.

“Our new Hemodialysis Unit is the best in the Kingdom, built to provide an exceptional experience”

Faisal Al-Hajji, Chief Operating Officer, JHAH.

Dialysis treatment takes hours not minutes and it can be stressful. When you enter the expanded and renovated JHAH hemodialysis treatment area, it becomes immediately clear that patient comfort and safety throughout the lengthy treatment has been carefully considered and catered to. One of the first things you may notice is there are no beds. Evenly spaced around the room are seventeen dialysis chairs designed for patient comfort. Private partitioned areas surround twelve of the chairs, this includes a television and reading light to provide options to help patients relax during treatment. The remaining five chairs are located in glass enclosed treatment areas for those requiring contact isolation, making a total of seventeen stations where previously there were seven.

“We have done everything we could to make patients comfortable during their treatment,” said Payas Scaria, Dialysis Unit Nurse Manager. “We have also tried to make it easier for people to get their treatments by adding additional dialysis stations and offering extended hours (6 a.m. to 11 p.m.) so people can book treatments to better fit their schedules.”

  • Increasing number of Hemodialysis stations from 7 to 17
