Dialysis patients in Happy Valley Goose Bay are now getting treatment closer to home through the new satellite dialysis unit at the Labrador Health center.
Allan Bock is the Communications Manager for Labrador – Grenfell Health.
He says in the past there have been many Aboriginal patients who had to move far away from home and leave their families for a long time to have this dialysis treatment.
But since the implementation of the dialysis unit, Aboriginal clients and their families in Labrador can receive the treatment closer to home and their loved ones.
We’ll have more coverage about this at a later date, so keep tuning to AtjiKangitut.
