Dialysis

Within the Division of Nephrology at The University of Michigan Health System, our Dialysis nurses offer complete, compassionate care to patients requiring services and therapies for the treatment of kidney disease.

UMHS utilizes an impressive array of state-of-the-art facilities and resources, offering comprehensive renal replacement (dialysis) treatments.
Join the talented Nephrology nursing professionals who embody The Michigan Difference, serving in a variety of dialysis programs, including:

Inpatient Dialysis
A full-service, state-of-the-art, Acute Dialysis Unit, where nurses provide renal replacement therapy (RRT) for all inpatients, and for outpatients who have complications or specialized dialysis care needs. The unit operates full-time, six days per week, and part-time for emergency care on Sundays. Featuring the most advanced RRT technology and equipment, this unit provides the following services:

  • Standard hemodialysis in the inpatient unit
  • Bedside hemodialysis for patients in the intensive care unit
  • Continuous veno-venous hemofiltration-dialysis (CVVHD) using citrate regional anti-coagulation — a form of continuous RRT used for critically-ill patients
  • Nocturnal Hemodialysis Program

The Acute Dialysis Unit team of nurses is highly experienced in performing hemodialysis. Nephrology faculty and fellows on our three consultative services (Acute Consultation, Transplant and Chronic Dialysis) supervise each RRT procedure performed on inpatients or outpatients treated in the hospital Acute Dialysis Unit.

Outpatient Dialysis
The Division of Nephrology at UMHS provides outpatient chronic dialysis care through the Michigan Dialysis Services, LLC, a corporate partnership between the University of Michigan and Renal Research Institute, LLC.
