Logan Regional Hospital’s Dialysis team provides hemodialysis to both adult and pediatric patients. The Dialysis team consists of a board-certified nephrologist specializing in kidney disease, registered nurses, specially trained technicians, social workers, and a certified diabetic and renal educator.
The department also offers a number of diabetes education programs through the hospital’s Kidney Clinic to give patients the tools and support they need to help them meet the challenges that come with chronic kidney disease (CKD).
About Logan Regional Hospital’s Kidney Clinic
Education about your diabetes can help you improve your quality of life. The Kidney Clinic at Logan Regional Hospital gives people living with renal disease the opportunity to learn and manage their health so that they can maintain adequate kidney function for as long as possible.
The Kidney Clinic was introduced in response to a nationwide initiative seeking to identify more than 26 million Americans with undiagnosed kidney disease.
