  • State-of-the-art dialysis delivery systems maintained on-site by highly trained technicians

  • Extensive reverse osmosis systems with water purification techniques and requirements that meet stringent state and federal standards of purity for water used in dialysis

All treatments are administered by experienced, highly trained nurses familiar with the latest dialysis treatments. 

Peritoneal dialysis

Peritoneal dialysis is available at several of our locations. Instead of using a machine, this type of dialysis uses the abdominal lining, called the peritoneal membrane, to filter blood. A cleansing solution, called dialysate, is infused through a tube inserted into your abdomen. Fluids, wastes, and chemicals pass from the tiny blood vessels in the peritoneal membrane into the dialysate, which is then drained after several hours.

  • Dialysis treatment of chronic end-stage or irreversible renal failure
