Many patients with chronic kidney disease or renal failure who need ongoing dialysis choose in-center care.
In addition to the Chromalloy American Kidney Center, one of our on-campus dialysis units and the oldest unit in operation in the St. Louis area, we offer comprehensive services at multiple dialysis centers conveniently located throughout the metro St. Louis area. This is part of our mission to take our outstanding care to the communities where our patients live.
While the majority of dialysis centers are open during daytime hours only, one site – the West Healthcare DaVita Dialysis Unit at 400 N. Lindbergh – offers evening and overnight hours three days a week (M, W, F) through its Nocturnal Dialysis Program.
