Doctor Vo Duc Chien, director of the hospital, said all equipment and medical processes at the center strictly follow Japanese standards.
The center was built under cooperation between the clinic and the Japanese Society for Dialysis Therapy and Tanaka Urology Clinic Group.
Dr. Chien said the dialysis center aims to become a training facility for nephrology and dialysis therapy at an international level.
In 2015, the hospital promoted the dialysis unit into a department level, featuring some 30 dialysis machines, serving 150 patients a day.
