1,500 liters of blood are filtered by healthy kidneys each day. Our kidneys control the waste in our body; we would not be able to live if waste products were not removed from our kidneys. People whose kidneys do not work properly experience a backup of waste in their blood. Without dialysis, the amount of waste products in the blood would amplify and reach a level that would cause extreme sickness or even death.
To meet the varied needs of our patients, we are proud to announce the opening of our Hollywood-Ravenel and Mount Pleasant kidney dialysis clinics. Our clinics are dedicated to providing comprehensive care to patients who suffer chronic kidney disease using the most-advanced and latest technology. These state-of-the art facilities enable us to provide our patients with the best possible kidney dialysis care in a warm, friendly and relaxing environment.
