Inpatient Hemodialysis Now Available

We now offer inpatient hemodialysis for patients who are battling kidney disease, acute kidney injury or volume overload while in hospital. This is an effort to keep patients and their families in the community by avoiding being transferred for their hemodialysis needs. We are delighted to be able to offer this service. Registered Nurses Dana Ingram and Brigitte Zeigler are leading this effort.
