In-Center Hemodialysis

Most patients in the United States choose to receive dialysis treatments in a hemodialysis center near where they live. A hemodialysis center usually has 12 to 32 dialysis stations. Nurses or dialysis technicians perform the treatment while patients sit in reclining chairs.

Hemodialysis treatments are usually given three times a week for about 3 ½ hours. Most centers schedule dialysis treatment on Monday- Wednesday-Friday or on Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday. Appointment times for treatments are usually from 6:00 in the morning through 3:00 in the afternoon.

Patients are usually seen by a doctor or nurse practitioner 2 to 4 times per month to assess progress, look for problems or answer questions related to dialysis.


Washington University Physicians have been pioneers in delivering dialysis care for more than 40 years. Our doctors are associated with several hemodialysis centers throughout the St. Louis area.
