She didn’t have any type of healthcare coverage. She was hospitalized for renal failure. She where she needed to be dialyzed three times a week. She was discharged after two weeks and needed to come back to the emergency room department in order to be dialyzed. The hospital contacted MexCare to find a home and a permanent solution for this patient.

She is very thankful to the hospital staff in Atlanta and everyone at MexCare. Patient said, “I’m very thankful with MexCare because they helped me when I needed the most.”
If your patient requires dialysis treatment, you can discharge them to MexCare with confidence that they will receive the best possible dialysis care. We currently have more than 30 dialysis centers located throughout Latin America, providing more options for patients 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.
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 clnical 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. The MexCare patient would likely not be able to pay for dialysis services in the U.S. and would only be taking a spot in your facility that could be used to treat other patients requiring acute care.
Transferring your dialysis patient to MexCare is a win-win situation for all involved. 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. Your hospital gets a reduced cost per discharge for the patient, as well as improved overall financial stability.
