Tourists are to get access to kidney dialysis in a private clinic.

The treatment, once only available at the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, is available at Bermuda Life Centre on Front Street.

Lynette Thomas, a certified nephrologist who directed King Edward VII Memorial Hospitalís dialysis unit for five years, said the extra service for visitors would improve the islandís marketability to tourists.

Dr Thomas said dialysis would be available at ďa state-of-the-art, private dialysis unit with personalised careĒ.
