Avicenna Dialysis Centre LLC was opened in Ivanovo in August 2017. The idea of creating the centre was based on the principles of public-private partnership. The purpose of the centre is to provide patients who have end-stage chronic kidney failure with vital hemodialysis treatment as part of the State Guarantee Programme of Compulsory Medical Insurance. The treatment is carried out according to the highest European standards by highly qualified Russian medical staff who have undergone special training under the B. Braun programme. The centre is equipped with a modern water treatment system and professional "artificial kidney" machines manufactured by the German company B. Braun Avitum AG, one of the world leaders in the industry of hemodialysis equipment. The centre is designed to treat up to 240 patients working in three shifts.
