Dialysis Center

The Dialysis Center provides dialysis treatments, testing services, support, and education six days per week to meet the medical, financial, and social service needs of patients using hemodialysis and their families.

Hemodialysis helps keep patients in kidney failure in reasonable health. Patients with kidney failure must remain on hemodialysis permanently unless they switch to peritoneal dialysis or receive a kidney transplant.

Patients receive outpatient dialysis treatment three days per week in the Dialysis Center. The Campbell County Health Dialysis Center also treats inpatients who need dialysis therapy.

LDL apheresis

LDL apheresis is a medical procedure that removes LDL (so-called "bad") cholesterol from the blood of patients who have a genetic condition that can't be controlled with diet, exercise, or medication. A machine with special filters is used to remove the LDL cholesterol from the patient's blood, and then it is returned to them using needles that are placed in each arm. Sometimes the patient may have a shunt surgically placed in their arm for this treatment. LDL apheresis is a life-long therapy that is required every two weeks, and a typical procedure lasts about two hours.
