There’s only one place you need to go for comprehensive kidney care. The Kidney Center, located at our Pleasant Prairie Hospital, offers a wide range of nephrology services to adults of all ages, including different ways of filtering unwanted substances from your blood when your kidneys aren’t able to do so. This “filtering” is called “dialysis.” Two ways to do this are in-center hemodialysis and home peritoneal dialysis.

In-center Hemodialysis
In-center hemodialysis is a way to filter unwanted substances from your blood by passing your blood through a special machine. This requires a visit to the Kidney Center up to three times per week.

Home Peritoneal Dialysis
Home peritoneal dialysis is a way to filter unwanted substances from your body at home through a tube that is placed in the abdomen. Our trained staff will help you through the training process and will provide ongoing support for you to manage treatments at home.

Kidney Center patients must be patients of one of our nephrologists. To request an appointment with one of our doctors, contact 262-577-8300. A tour of the Kidney Center can be arranged through one of our social workers by calling 262-577-8792.
