The only department of artificial kidney in the Shirak region which
is located in the Gyumri "Samaritan" hospital will soon enlarge its
activity. The financial support will come from the French SPFA and
German "Fresimius Medical Case" organizations.

On the first floor of the hospital a new department of hemodialysis
will be opened which will give the doctors the possibility to
accept more patients. According to the head of the hospital Rafik
Khachatryan, the creation of the new department is urgent, reports
