Site identified for Tonga’s new dialysis centre

The spokesperson said negotiations are underway to secure the site, which is about 2 kilometres away from Vaiola hospital.

He said the land has been gifted by Queen Nanasipau’u Tuku’aho.

Kaniva News reports a newly registered non-profitable organisation has been set up to run the operation.

Members of the organisation are Minister of Health Saia Piukala, Director of Health Siale ‘Akau’ola, Victorina Afeaki Kioa, Dr Sione Latu, Dr Lisiate ‘Ulufonua and Lord Vaea.

The facility would be established “at no cost to the government.”
