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.
