We are pleased to announce the opening of our new dialysis center in Missoula on South Reserve Street. CMC has partnered with DCI, Inc. the largest non-profit dialysis provider in the United States. The 10-station, 6,500 square foot dialysis facility offers in-center and home hemodialysis, where blood is pumped out of the body to an artificial kidney machine, and returned to the body by tubes that are connected to a machine, and peritoneal dialysis (PD) training, where the inside lining of a patient’s own belly acts as a natural filter. Wastes are taken out by means of a cleansing fluid called dialysate, which is washed in and out of the belly in cycles.
"The new center will provide a convenient location with quality dialysis care close to home along with added patient comforts such as heated chairs and personal televisions,” explained Jim Gillhouse, Associate Administrator at Community Medical Center.
The hemodialysis schedule is currently Monday through Friday 7 am – 4 pm with an expectation to adjust in the future as patient needs develop.
