A renal dialysis center, or sometimes just referred to as a dialysis center, is a place typically outside of a hospital where patients can receive hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis treatment. Dialysis treatment is required for patients whose kidneys cannot remove waste and other toxins from the blood.
It’s important for a patient to not miss or skip dialysis sessions, as a center may not be able to make up the time due to their own busy schedule. While treatment processes may vary from center to center, patients will typically receive around three treatments a week. Each treatment may take about three to four hours each time.
