December 29, 2009

Shore Memorial Hospital will be hosting an open house for its new Outpatient Dialysis Center in Northfield on Thursday, January 7 at 4 p.m. The new center is located at 2605 Shore Road.

The new location, which will replace the unit currently located at the hospital, will be staffed by an on-site, board-certified Shore Memorial nephrologist, dedicated renal nurses, certified renal technicians, dieticians, and social workers. The center will feature 21 individual dialysis stations, in addition to a treatment room, a Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) exam room, Peritoneal Dialysis, meeting space for patient care conferences and offices for staff and management.

Several special amenities were also integrated into the plan for the Outpatient Dialysis Center as a result of needs expressed by patients, visitors and staff. These include wireless Internet access, televisions at each dialysis station and heated treatment chairs.

Those who attend the open house will be able to tour the facility and ask the dialysis center’s highly trained staff any questions they may have.
