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

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.
