The National Kidney and Transplant Institute is a tertiary referral hospital located in Quezon City, Philippines. The hospital was announced on January 16, 1981.

The National Kidney and Transplant Institute, or NKTI, is a tertiary medical specialty center for renal health. The hospital also offers voluntary blood services.

The hospital was formerly known as the National Kidney Foundation of the Philippines (NKFP).[1]

Building and Location[edit]

The National Kidney and Transplant Institute sits in the center of a 58,899 square-meter lot, along East Avenue in Quezon City.

The Institute itself is 2-storey structure with three buildings (Main, Annex and Dialysis Center) connected to each other. The Main Building houses most of the Cost Centers and where the Administrative offices can be found. The Annex Building encloses the recently opened Marcos Wing and the Radiology Dept (MRI and CT Scan centers), Center for Special Services and also the ER Dept.

In its nearly three decades of operations, NKTI has always aimed for general patient care but most importantly to the prevention or treatment of renal disease; and the various achievements can readily attest to this not only in the Philippines but in Asia as well: double transplant - kidney & pancreas (first in Asia, March 1988); Kidney - Liver transplant (first in Asia, September 1990); Bone Marrow Transplant (first in the Philippines, August 1990); ISO-Certification (first Government Hospital in the Philippines, February 2003).
