Northwest Kidney Centers, Clallam County’s only provider of life-sustaining kidney dialysis, has opened its new Port Angeles dialysis clinic on Nov. 1, 2022. The new 8,500-square-foot clinic is at 707 S. Chase St., Port Angeles. The new clinic provides out-patient dialysis, feature dedicated training space for home dialysis patients, and offer free community health classes.
“We are honored to be a part of the Port Angeles community and we are excited that our patients in Clallam County will receive care in this state-of-the-art clinic,” said Northwest Kidney Centers CEO Rebecca Fox. “With this new and expanded facility, we will be better able to support our in-center dialysis patients and increase our ability to train and support those who dialyze at home.”
The clinic accommodates 60 patients for three-times-a-week dialysis treatments that take about four hours each time. Northwest Kidney Centers staff members also train and support patients who are interested and able to do dialysis at home. There is also dedicated space for free community classes to help people at any stage of kidney disease optimize their health, quality of life and independence.
Dr. Cyrus Cryst is the medical director, and Tosha Mackness, RN, is the clinical director of the clinic. The new clinic was designed by Mahlum Architects and the general contractor was Aldrich & Associates.
