Hemodialysis Unit

The Mount Sinai Dialysis Center at East River Plaza is an adult outpatient dialysis unit. Equipped with the newest state-of-the-art technology and designed to be a spacious, calm, and comfortable environment, the unit provides the most convenient and effective chronic hemodialysis treatment possible. Patients requiring additional care have access to the Mount Sinai Health System's full range of services, which include vascular surgery, urology, interventional radiology, and transplant surgery.

Our Caring Hemodialysis Team

Our highly-skilled and multilingual staff emphasizes compassion, comfort, and communication to ensure patients have all they need for the best possible experience. A new patient will be assigned a dedicated team consisting of a physician (Nephrologist), a primary dialysis nurse, a social worker, and a dietitian as well as other clinicians who work together to coordinate and optimize care. In addition to the languages spoken by our staff (which include Spanish, Russian, and French) a translation service is also available. We seek to create the most relaxed and comfortable environment possible through amenities such as televisions at every station and free Wi-Fi.

Mount Sinai's Convenient Dialysis Services
The unit is open Monday through Saturday. Patients are assigned to either a Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule or Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday schedule in one of four time slots:

  •  6 am–10 am
  • 10 am–2 pm
  • 2 pm–6 pm
  • 6 pm-10 pm

We also welcome international and traveling patients visiting New York City. Our staff makes all arrangements regarding flexible scheduling, medical records, and payment in advance to ensure the most convenient and seamless appointment possible.

By combining the newest technology, convenient scheduling, and a compassionate staff, the Mount Sinai Dialysis Center strives to provide its patients with the highest quality of dialysis care.
