Inpatient Dialysis

St. Anthony Community Hospital, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth), now offers inpatient dialysis for patients who are seen in the Emergency Department and need to be admitted to the Medical Surgical and Intensive Care units. Availability of this service will decrease the need to transfer patients who may need kidney dialysis to another hospital.

What is dialysis?

Dialysis is a lifesaving treatment for those who suffer from chronic kidney disease. Dialysis treatments assist in filtering and purifying blood from harmful waste products when the kidneys are unable to function properly. 

Who will be treating me?

The Inpatient Dialysis team consists of a lead nephrologist, dialysis nurses, and other medical professionals who collaborate to develop personalized treatment plans for patients.

The Inpatient Dialysis team aims to make patients as comfortable as possible while undergoing this process. Treatment is provided in a private space using advanced equipment and technology. The patient will be cared for by highly trained clinical staff to ensure the best possible outcomes. Contact us to learn more about an inpatient dialysis center near you: 845.986.2276.
