Construction of Dialysis Unit at Halifax Infirmary Moving Forward

Dialysis is an important, life-saving treatment. That is why government is continuing to improve access to this care.

Government has approved $5.98 million to add six more dialysis chairs at the Halifax Infirmary. As a result, 24 more patients will be able to be treated at the Halifax Infirmary each week.

"Dialysis treatment is hard on patients and their families, it often means multiple trips for treatment each week,” said Health and Wellness Minister Randy Delorey. “We want to make it easier for more Nova Scotians to get this treatment.”
