When you or someone you love is diagnosed with kidney (renal) failure, you want the very best care available. St. Joseph Medical Center offers one the largest, most sophisticated nephrology programs on the West Coast. Franciscan Nephrology Services provides more than 60,000 treatments each year through acute in-patient services and state-of-the-art dialysis centers in Tacoma, Puyallup and Gig Harbor.
As a hospital-based program, patients have the unique benefit of the expertise and support of an entire regional medical center. All dialysis nursing staff and technicians undergo a 12-week onsite residency in this specialty. Our caring, dedicated team also includes registered dietitians and social workers who are available to help patients and their families.
