Dialysis Care

At Riverside Care Center, an on-site dialysis center provides residents with easy access to dialysis care in any kind of weather. In order to deliver the latest in care, Riverside has teamed up with one of the region’s leading dialysis providers.

Hemodialysis (often simply referred to as “dialysis”) is the process of removing toxins from the blood of a patient with acute or chronic renal (kidney) failure. Normally these toxins are removed from the blood by the kidney. When the kidney is not functioning properly, dialysis is sometimes recommended in order to allow the patient to live a longer life.

With the help of Riverside’s health care staff and the latest medical technologies, many dialysis patients find that they can still lead full, active lives.

As treatment plans are implemented, the patient’s progress is continually monitored and modified.
