Nearest Dialysis Center to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Does anybody know where the closest dialysis center or hospital that has a dialysis center in it.? We have friends who are planning a family trip to Punta Cana next year and they have family members who plan on going and will be need of hemodialysis. One needs 3 1/2 hours and the other needs 4 hours and 15 minutes. Can somebody give us some advise and what the cost maybe, since it is out of the united states.

Here are a few options.

1-They should ask their doctor. He or she may have the answer. Such as Home Dialysis. I think I have heard of that. Not sure, hence why you should ask the Dr.

2-Barring that, here is a list of the hospitals I am aware of

Santo Domingo

Clinica Abreu, Calle Beller #42

www.clinicaabreu.com.do

Tel: 809 688 4411

Plaza de la Salud

Calle Pepillo Salcedo

www.hgps.do

Tel: 809 565 9989

Santiago

Hospital Metropolitan de Santiago (HOMS)

Autopista Duarte

www.homshospital.com

Tel: 829 947 2222

Puerto Plata

Centro Medico Bournigal

www.bournigal-hospital.com

Tel: 809 586 2342

Sosua

Centro Medico Cabarete

www.cabaretemedicalcenter.com

Tel: 809 571 4696

Punta Cana

Hospiten Bavaro

www.hospiten.es

Tel: 809 686 1414

You probably can contact the hospital and discuss this via email or a phone call.

3-Have them call the insurance company that they use. I bet they have lots of resources

Hope this helps a bit!

This would be a good thread to put in the frequently asked questions. Anyone?

I couldn't agree more - this should be added to "frequently asked".
