This is an activity we hold at our center every three months. On behalf of our patients,  thank you Ms. Ricafrente!

Kidney Disease & Obesity – Healthy Lifestyle for Healthy Kidneys

 

Last March 9, 2017 the world celebrated World Kidney Day with the theme “Kidney Disease & Obesity – Healthy Lifestyle for Healthy Kidneys” to promote education on the harmful consequences of obesity and its association with kidney disease.

To promote awareness and encourage a healthy lifestyle among its patients and staff, KMatters Taguig Dialysis & Diagnostic Center embarked on a month long campaign highlighted by a poster making contest and Biggest Loser program.  The winners included Mr. Bonifacio Selbijan (Poster Making – Patient Category), Ms. Vanessa Jane Daiz and Ma. Zyrrhien Liwanagan (Poster Making – Staff Category) and Mr. Noel Caasi (Biggest Loser).

Regular exercise and physical activity help to reduce the risk of developing kidney disease.  Moving is a simple yet powerful action that creates a link between our health and our daily routine.  You can walk, jog, run, dance, swim, bike – whatever activity you choose the important thing is to get up and move.  Thirty minutes of moderate exercise at least 4-5 times a week is recommended.

KMatters Celebrates Christmas 2016

On December 17, 2016 the KMatters family celebrated Christmas by sharing joy, fun and laughter with our beloved patients and hardworking staff.  The night was filled with delicious food, fun games, a load of prizes, entertaining staff presentations and line dancing.

During this Annual Christmas Celebration, we gave recognition to our staff who gave exemplary service to our patients through out the year.  Winning awards for outstanding service were Mr. Joric Silverio and Ms. Vanessa Jane Diaz; while best patient care awardees were Ms. Abby Gertrude Sangueza, RN and Ms. Abegail Lachaona, RN.  Our employee of the year silver awardee was Ms. Rachelle Palomo, RMT and employee of the year gold awardee was Ms. Rachelle Pescasio, RN.  KMatters is truly blessed to have such dedicated, dynamic staff who genuinely care about providing quality, compassionate service to our patients and patrons.

Sponsors of the event include DialMed, BBraun, Goodfellow, Roche, Leo Pharma and Singapore Diagnostics.  Thank you for your generosity this yuletide season.

Lastly, let us remember the true reason for the season.  A Savior was born in a humble manger, and would grow to be a man of compassion, conviction and courage.  As we thank the Good Lord for all His blessings, let us try to emulate the values of Christ and be saviors in our own little way for our patients, friends and family.

KMatters Gives Back – Discounted Rates for Dialysis for Dec 2016

 

kmtdc-spec-offKMatters Taguig Dialysis & Diagnostic Center will be offering special discounted rates for dialysis treatments for their regular hemodialysis patients with good standing for December 2016.  This is our way of celebrating the holiday season – by giving back and helping the patients who have entrusted their health care to KMatters.

The last months of the year are particularly challenging for dialysis patients because after consuming their annual PHIC benefits, patients start paying for dialysis treatments out of their own pockets.  In an effort to ease some of the burden of these expenses, KMatters organizes fund raising activities through out the year.  Funds raised will be used to subsidize dialysis treatments, allowing KMatters to lower the cost of dialysis treatments for the entire month of December 2016 for its loyal patrons.

KMatters is grateful to those who continue supporting their fundraising efforts every year. A heartfelt thank you to all for helping us pay it forward.  Happy holidays!
