In-House Dialysis

As part of the commitment to provide our residents with the best care and quality of life, we now offer DaVita dialysis at our facility. This means residents with medical conditions that require dialysis can dialyze conveniently and comfortably—with no more trips to a dialysis center.

By removing the need to travel to treatment, residents may experience reduced stress and benefit from smoother care coordination between our care team, the nephrologist, and the onsite DaVita care team. This will save hours of therapy time by eliminating commuting time and coordination.

Additionally, patients receive safe, high-quality therapy from a dialysis leader with 20 years of experience and established and proven clinical procedures.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is sub-acute the same as rehab?

Yes. Sub-acute is a form of short-term rehabilitation. Patients come to these types of settings after the hospital or as a step down from acute rehabilitation. Sub-acute rehabilitation focuses on helping individuals regain their independence through physical, occupational, speech, and recreational therapies.

The average sub-acute rehabilitation stay is two weeks, while some stays can be as long as three months. The length of stay varies depending on the patient’s condition, how quickly they recover, patient effort in therapy, and insurance approval.
