The Ohsweken Dialysis Unit opened in 2010 and began as a 12-station dialysis satellite unit for the Chronic Kidney Disease Program at St. Joseph’s Healthcare. The program offers culturally safe intervention care for those patients from the community and surrounding area who need to access dialysis locally, up to 6 days a week.
