Inaugurating a dialysis centre on the premises of the Mandya Institute of Medical Sciences (MIMS) hospital here on Monday, its director Pushpa Sarkar said that the new facility would offer quality services to affected persons.
The Devamma Puttachi Siddegowda Trust, which was founded by the family of D.P. Siddegowda, writer with the penname ‘Sita Suta’ here, had not only donated two dialysis machines but also got a building constructed for the dialysis centre, she said.
The dialysis centre would be of immense help to poor people in Mandya and the surrounding places. Earlier, the institute had three dialysis machines and recently, it had procured two more. It had been proposed to install 16 such machines at the centre, Ms. Sarkar said.
She lauded the Devamma Puttachi Siddegowda Trust for its charity and social concern.
Medical Superintendent at MIMS K.M. Shivakumar, in-charge of the dialysis centre B.N. Prakash, Rekha, M.R. Harish, Umesh and others were present.
