Few things in life are as difficult as coping with a chronic illness such as kidney disease. For many patients and families the need for dialysis is a devastating event in their lives. The amount of change is overwhelming. Seemingly overnight, a persons life is now dependant on, and revolves around, their dialysis treatments. Many times this happens without any warning. There is no time to make the emotional adjustment to “being sick”.
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.
