The western region of Sanford Health has been an innovator in treatment options for kidney failure. Sanford Health’s Tom & Frances Leach Bismarck Dialysis is the only freestanding kidney dialysis center in central and western North Dakota. In addition, this region of Sanford Health also provides chronic hemodialysis at our Fort Yates and Jamestown locations.
The innovative, freestanding center allows patients to receive treatment without having to enter the hospital. Studies have shown dialysis patients who receive care in a freestanding center, rather than inside a hospital, have better outcomes. Our center provides patients with improved comfort, access and aesthetics. It offers 15 state-of-the-art dialysis stations, including a pediatric station featuring a videogame system. Each station includes a personal television and telephone. The spacious facility uses natural light, a warm color scheme and a state-of-the-art heating and cooling system to ensure patient comfort. A drive-through loop and canopy on the east side of the building provide convenient access and protection from the elements.
