Early detection of chronic renal conditions saves lives.
On 10 March, we celebrate kidneys. #worldkidneyday.

Chronic kidney disease is more common that you might think. Early detection and timely treatment is life-saving! By the year 2040, chronic kidney diseases will be the fifth leading cause of death.

To draw attention to the importance of kidney disease, we are participating with the other hospitals in the E17 Hospital Network in the #showyourkidneys challengeand are showing our kidneys on World Kidney Day.

Will you show us a nice picture of your kidneys, too? Use the hashtag #showyourkidneys and tag our hospital when you share it on social media.
