Curacao hotel, dialysis treatment center partner up

The 80-room Hotel Kura Hulanda Spa and Casino in Willemstad, Curacao, offers special rates and arrangements for its guests who are seeking medical treatments at the new Curacao Dialysis Center, also in the capital city.

The center, one of the first in the Caribbean, opened in January 2006 and offers treatments to residents and visitors alike.

With a kidney disease, it can prove difficult to find a place to vacation. People who require dialysis treatments often are restricted in their travels because most require three treatments a week, said Esther Rooijakers, CDC manager. We wanted anyone who was interested in visiting Curacao to be able to, regardless of medical restrictions.

The Center is housed in a building that is part of and has been restored in the same style as the adjacent Project Kura Hulanda, an eight-block complex that is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site comprising the hotel, a museum, a business facility, a spa, restaurants and shops.

Dialysis treatments are $400 per treatment, plus a one-time doctors fee of $95. Payment is required at the time of service.
