The fourth new state-of-the-art centre is the largest stand-alone dialysis facility in the world with a 160-bed setup, serving 900+ patients in Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan. As per the phase-wise rollout plan of constructing four dialysis centres on a turnkey basis, NephroPlus is proud to announce its commitment to completing the set-up in Uzbekistan.
