The Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital provides dialysis services to area residents in partnership with Kingston General Hospital. At present, the program runs six days per week and attends to 40 patients with treatments times being three to five hours on those days.
The redevelopment of the Smiths Falls Site of the hospital included a new home for the Dialysis program. This new unit is considered a “showcase piece” providing treatment in a de-institutionalized setting. Its new location provides easy access for patients as it is in close proximity to the new main entrance off Elmsley Street at the Smiths Falls Site.
