It’s a story that probably sounds far too familiar. Blanca Chavez came to the United States in search of a better life for her and her child. She settled in Atlanta, where she lived for 11 years working at a fast food restaurant. One day Blanca awoke in serious pain and looking yellow and jaundiced. She went to a local hospital and was admitted with renal failure, which required her to be dialyzed three times a week. Blanca was discharged after two weeks, but still needed to come back to the emergency room regularly for dialysis. As you might imagine, Blanca didn’t have any type of healthcare coverage.
Luckily for Bianca, a hospital employee was aware of MexCare and contacted them to find a permanent solution for her. MexCare was able to transport Blanca back to her hometown where she get support from her family and loved ones. Perhaps more importantly, she is getting dialysis and treatment work in preparation for a kidney transplant. .
“I’m very thankful to all of the hospital staff that helped me and especially to MexCare – they helped me when I needed it the most.”
If your foreign national patient requires dialysis treatment, you can discharge them to MexCare with confidence that they will receive the best possible dialysis care. MexCare currently utilizes more than 30 dialysis centers throughout Latin America that give patients’ the means to reconnect with their families. Our experts aim to provide the best possible renal care to our patients and will thoroughly explain the course of treatment, every step of the way.
MexCare stays in constant contact with both the transferring facility and the patient’s new medical home, providing bilingual communication as necessary throughout the process. We work with the hospitals and clinical centers in Latin America and agree to the length of stay and eventual discharge plan for the incoming patient.
Also by discharging your dialysis patient to MexCare you will be able to better utilize inpatient and emergency room beds. If the patient is unable to pay for dialysis services in the U.S., they are siphoning resources that could be used in treating other patients requiring acute care.
Transferring your dialysis patient to MexCare is a win-win situation for all involved. Your hospital gets a reduced cost per discharge for the patient, as well as improved overall financial stability. The patient gets permanent placement in a health care facility close to their home, where they can recover in the company of friends and family.
