Located at the Espace building at Ile du Port, the state of the art facility of Renasense aims to provide the finest in renal care and dialysis to all patients who need such services, both residents and visitors.
Among local guests present at the launch were Vice-President Vincent Meriton; the Minister for Industry, Entrepreneurship Development and Business Innovation Wallace Cosgrow and the Minister for Employment, Immigration and Civil Status Myriam Telemaque.
Distinguished representatives of Renasense also graced the event notably its chairman Priya Shankar Dasgupta; its chief executive Partha Banerjee and Professor Lukas Haragsim, medical director, among others.
Operating locally under the name Renasense (Seychelles), Renasense is a subsidiary of ARC Healthcare and it aims to provide innovative, patient-centered renal care by providing state of the art facilities which prioritise patient safety and comfort while keeping costs to a minimum.
The centre boasts a team of doctors, labelled as the Renaissance team, with extensive medical experience in the United Kingdom, the United States of America, India, the United Arab Emirates, and Africa. And it is aiming at becoming the foremost global name in renal healthcare.
“Our best practices and quality management protocols allow us to deliver consistent, high-class services. Our future-forward framework is ready to meet the seamless integration of new, industry-standard methods,” according to Renasense.
“Whatever I will do, the day one commitment is I have to be the best,” said chairman Dasgupta. And why Seychelles?
“When I came here for the first time I realised that this is a country which receives highest attention from world tourism. I finally discovered it’s an excellent country for tourism development, and there is a community in the world that unfortunately has to go through dialysis when they are outside their home country. This whole opportunity is designed primarily to the entire community which requires dialysis every third day. They will be able to come into Seychelles, enjoy the country and do not worry at all with respect to their health,” said Mr Dasgupta.
As for CEO Banerjee who has worked here before under another Indian medical team, he said he has delivered a lot but could not deliver enough. Therefore he wishes to accomplish that with Renasense.
“We’ve got the best machines in the world,” he said.
“We are going to deliver the same service we offer to a head of state,” said American Haragsim. He is a member of the American Society of Nephrology, the American Medical Association and a Fellow of the American College of Physicians. Dr Haragsim serves on several university committees. He serves as a medical director in multiple dialysis units within the State of Oklahoma.
Renasense renal care also said it will work with local healthcare organisations to provide free healthcare screenings and education on how to prevent and manage kidney disease.
The centre will only start operations after it has met the norms and procedures of the Ministry of Health.
