The Regional Renal Program at Windsor Regional Hospital supports the principles of holistic patient-centered care to cater to the physical, emotional, and social needs of patients with kidney disease and their families.
The regional program provides a continuum of services including a Multi-Care Kidney Clinic, home dialysis training and support, and hemodialysis.
Hemodialysis services are available to in-patients at the Ouellette Campus and ambulatory out-patients at both the Ouellette Campus (in the Jeanne Mance Building and the Bell Building) and at a Satellite Dialysis Unit at the Shores of Erie HealthCare, in Leamington.
Our multidisciplinary team is made up of Nephrologists, Nurse Practitioner, Pharmacists, Dietitians, Social Workers, Nurses, Dialysis Assistants, Bio Technicians and Clerks.
If you or someone you care about have, or are at risk of kidney disease, the following links may offer additional information and support.
Patients who wish to travel must plan in advance. Travel within Canada usually requires several weeks’ notice. Travel outside of Canada requires longer notice. If you are planning a vacation, please notify your Social Worker as soon as possible.
The patient or family makes the initial contact with the dialysis center they wish to travel to so as to arrange dates for dialysis. At that time, the patient or family must request the receiving unit to send transfer forms to us for completion. Often, a number of tests are required. Please allow plenty of time for this information to be organized. Most units will not confirm your travel until all information is received.
It is best to get prior approval from OHIP when travelling out of province. All units out of Canada charge varying fees that are the responsibility of the patient. OHIP may pay a small portion for each dialysis treatment for qualifying patients. Additional fees may be charged. Be sure to get the costs or additional costs charged at the dialysis centre you are travelling to in writing.
