On the 21st of March, 2017, in Tikhvin, Leningrad Region, first patients were admitted to the new Nefrosovet Department of Nephrology and Hemodialysis based on SBHI LR A.F. Kalmykov Tikhvin Regional Hospital.

The primary mission of the Department is to provide a full range of treatment options for patients with kidney disease in the Eastern part of the Region (Tikhvin, Boksitogorsk, and Kirishi Districts) with a total population over 180,000 people. There are 16 dialysis units in our department, which makes it possible to provide high-quality hemodialysis for 96 patients. The department provides for hospital ambulatory care as well as inpatient care

The Department of Nephrology and Hemodialysis in Tikhvin represents the third phase of the Governor’s Project implementation in the Leningrad Region. In May 2015, a Department of Nephrology and Hemodialysis was opened in Gatchina, and in January 2016 – in Luga.

The Governor’s Project encouraged investments in community services implementing measures for health improvement without public expenditure while retaining the state ownership of the healthcare institutions.
