Improved access to kidney care for area residents

A community dialysis unit open on the North Shore in Kamloops for area residents

KAMLOOPS – Health Minister Terry Lake, BC Renal Agency leaders, Interior Health representatives and renal patients marked completion on Friday of a new community dialysis unit that brings hemodialysis services closer to home for those in the Kamloops area.

“We continue to improve the supports available to patients living with kidney disease,” said Lake. “The new community dialysis unit is already making a tremendous difference to hemodialysis patients in Kamloops and the surrounding region.”

 

The community dialysis unit, located on the North Shore in Kamloops, allows stable kidney patients access to hemodialysis services outside of Royal Inland Hospital. The unit opened to patients last month and feedback about the new space, equipment and focus on education has been overwhelmingly positive.
