Manitoba LogoThe province is expanding renal health dialysis services at Seven Oaks General Hospital with the addition of a new, eight-station dialysis unit.

The new stations — coming at a cost of $3 million — can accommodate 48 additional patients per year, bringing the total number of patients that the facility can accommodate up to 300.

When it opens, the facility will have a total of 50 dialysis stations.

“Every day, dozens of Manitobans receive treatment and care for kidney disease including screening, monitoring and dialysis,” said Health Minister Erin Selby. “This new renal health dialysis unit will ensure more patients with kidney disease receive the quality care they need quickly.”

The new unit is expected to open on March 17.
