Dialysis Services

Dialysis services are provided by Dialysis Centers of Central Iowa, a joint venture of Mary Greeley Medical Center and DaVita. Dialysis Centers of Centeral Iowa offer hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.

Hemodialysis

Hemodialysis, which involves cleaning blood by passing it through an artificial kidney machine, is offered to renal failure patients who are hospitalized at Mary Greeley Medical Center and at the three Dialysis Centers of Central Iowa outpatient dialysis treatment centers.

Treatment requires patients to undergo dialysis three times a week for four hours each visit. Patients rest in recliners during treatment and may watch television, read, knit, take a nap or converse. Because patients are scheduled for the same times each week, they get to know the staff and fellow patients. Many employees have 20 or more years of experience at their centers.

Peritoneal Dialysis

Peritoneal dialysis is internal or in-body dialysis. Peritoneal dialysis uses a blood-cleansing solution, dialysate, which is instilled into the peritoneal cavity, a region of the abdomen.

Locations and Staff

Dialysis Centers of Central Iowa feature state-of-the-art equipment and a highly trained staff of registered nurses, patient care technicians, registered dieticians and social workers. Our nurses are on-call 24 hours daily. Social workers are on-site to help with transportation, insurance and other patient needs. Our dialysis patients receive the community-oriented care that is Mary Greeley Medical Center's commitment.

Dialysis is covered by private insurance or Medicare, even if a patient is under the required age to receive other Medicare benefits.
