Shijiazhuang Xinhua Changshan Pharmaceutical Hemodialysis Center, established on this basis and standard, passed the on-site inspection of experts on January 6, 2016, and was approved as the designated urban medical insurance unit. On November 30, 2017, the Provincial Medical Insurance Center released the list of the first designated medical institutions for provincial medical insurance in 2017, in which Changshan Hemodialysis Center was included. Now it has become the designated medical institution for provincial medical insurance.

The blood purification center covers an area of nearly 2,000 square meters, and contains spacious and bright rooms, a warm and comfortable environment, complete facilities, a reasonable layout, and a standardized process.

Our physicians are very experienced in hemodialysis, so they can formulate and adjust blood purification treatment regimens (such as hemodialysis, hemofiltration, hemofiltration, and hemoperfusion etc.) according to the patient's condition. They are skilled at the treatment of acute and chronic complications, and are able to provide nutrition guidance and health education for patients. The nursing personnel in our center are proficient in the operation of the hemodialysis devices and the handling of the vascular puncture technique. They are also able to make the emergent treatment for blood purification complications.
