When you or a member of your family become reliant on regular dialysis treatments, you need to build your lifestyle around a schedule of pre-arranged appointments that require your regular attendance at a particular place and time in order for you to continue enjoying a healthy and productive life.
This can often mean being tied to the hospital you are assigned by your doctor and, along with hundreds of other patients, being fitted in at times that may not be convenient to you.
This is not the fault of your hospital. It is a reflection of the scarcity of dialysis treatment locations combined with the ever-growing numbers of patients who need to be treated. Demand continues to exceed supply, and this condition is likely to become exacerbated as our society grows steadily older.
Fortunately, some privately run health care facilities are investing in dialysis equipment in an effort to relieve some of the pressure on the public health system. They offer this service within the government system, in addition to serving private patients.
Through your family doctor or specialist, you can arrange to take advantage of our professionally staffed and modern dialysis facilities.
Our dialysis centres are located in Brockville and Stoney Creek, Ontario
