Transient Dialysis for Traveling Patients
Mount Sinai's Kidney Center is pleased to offer transient hemodialysis services to traveling patients visiting New York City who need both chronic and acute therapy for kidney disease. With flexible scheduling, a multilingual staff and translation service, competitive pricing, and an emphasis on privacy and confidentiality, our Center provides visiting patients with the highest possible level of care.
Team Treatment for Transient Dialysis
International and traveling patients interested in coming to Mount Sinai for dialysis can start by contacting our transient dialysis social worker and financial specialist to make arrangements including scheduling, transmitting doctor's orders, coordinating any necessary medications, and initiating payment. Our staff individually assists each patient (or patient's social worker or medical team) through each step of the process to ensure a seamless transition in care.
Our transient dialysis services are provided by a team of licensed, registered nurses and on-site physicians. These services are enhanced by the Kidney Center's home within the Mount Sinai Health System, which gives our patients access to the full range of unrivaled care throughout the hospital.
Mount Sinai's Kidney Center also helps our own dialysis patients who plan to travel elsewhere by coordinating therapy with a facility at their destination.
