Sprenger Healthcare’s Smithville Western campus is excited to announce the addition of NxStage Hemodialysis directly at our facility – without having to be transported to an off-site location.
Residents can benefit from on-site hemodialysis 4-5 days per week vs. the conventional 3 days per week in-center. This means shorter treatments, no need for transportation, and more time for rehabilitation and socialization. Treatments are performed in as little as 2-3 hours, per session, in our exclusive den. More frequent hemodialysis treatment reduces the amount of time there is for fluid and toxins to build-up between treatments, resulting in an overall healthier, happier resident.
Since frequent hemodialysis mimics how healthy kidneys function, residents typically experience the following health benefits after treatment:
- Increased energy and vitality
- Improved appetite
- Fewer cardiac-related hospitalizations
- A decrease in the number of medications taken
- A reduction in the amount of stress placed on the heart
- Improved survival
