Overview

The Dialysis Program has a team of professionals ready to offer support to our patients and their family members while they adjust to receiving dialysis. Our doctors, nurses, dietitians, social workers, and technicians are committed to providing the best care and meeting the needs of each of our patients. Since 1967 we’ve assisted thousands of patients on dialysis and their families live as normal life as possible.

The program includes 17 dialysis facilities located throughout Utah, Idaho, and Nevada. University faculty and local community nephrologists serve as medical directors for each of our facilities. Nephrology Clinics, specializing in chronic kidney disease (CKD), hypertension, and diabetes are located at or near most of our facilities. CKD and dialysis options education classes for patients and families are held regularly at most of our dialysis facilities. A long standing and close association with the University of Utah Transplant program ensures that each of our patients are considered for kidney and/or pancreas transplant and evaluated as appropriate.
