New at Smithville Western: On-Site NxStage Hemodialysis

08/16/2021 | Sprenger Healthcare

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
