additional services

We also treat patients with Chronic Kidney Disease who are not on dial­y­sis. Our goal is to keep patients with kidney disease as healthy as possi­ble through educa­tion and manage­ment of anemia in an attempt to avoid dial­y­sis in the future. 

We also prepare new patients coming to Dial­y­sis by giving them a tour of the unit and having them sit and talk with other patients about their expe­ri­ences on dial­y­sis. Early refer­ral is the key to making the tran­si­tion to dial­y­sis as easy as possible. 

The Ivin­son Dial­y­sis Depart­ment serves the needs of indi­vid­u­als with end stage renal disease. Dial­y­sis at IMH is small enough so each patient receives special­ized, tailored atten­tion, but large enough to house inno­v­a­tive, advanced tech­nol­ogy and treat­ment offer­ings. We provide compre­hen­sive care for local, regional, and trav­el­ing patients. 

Opened in 1999, the Dial­y­sis Depart­ment conve­niently provides outpa­tient hemodial­y­sis services for local resi­dents and visit­ing patients. All patients receive indi­vid­u­al­ized and compas­sion­ate patient centered care from highly skilled staff which includes RNs and a certi­fied patient care tech­ni­cian. The depart­ment is lead by a certi­fied nephrol­ogy nurse and a medical direc­tor that is board certi­fied in nephrology.
