The Susie B. Tuttle Dialysis Unit has five treatment stations and currently serves approximately 20 patients a week up to six times weekly. The unit has service hours six-days a week, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday from 6:00a.m. to 3:00p.m. The Susie B. Tuttle Dialysis Unit is an active participant in the 5-Diamond Patient Safety Program, through Heartland Kidney Network.
During the hemodialysis treatment, the patient’s blood is processed through the dialysis machine to remove toxins and reduce fluid build-up. Each treatment lasts 3-4 hours. While undergoing dialysis patients are carefully monitored by our experienced and skilled dialysis team including a nephrologist, dialysis nurses and technicians, social worker and dietitian. Working closely with the patient and the family, the dialysis team determines the best individual treatment plan for each patient.
