Mitchell Dialysis Facility Hosts Ribbon Cutting

Friday, October 21, 2011

The Mitchell County Dialysis Facility has provided patients convenient access to dialysis care since it first opened on December 30, 1987. With renovations to the facility now complete, patients will appreciate a much larger patient care area that expands the facility’s dialysis capacity from 12 hemodialysis chairs to 19 including  one isolation station.

New technology can be found throughout, including an electronic medical records system which helps ensure patient safety and workflow efficiency.

In addition, the implementation of a new ozone disinfection system will be utilized for water treatment after hours. The new system disinfects against contaminants without the use of chemicals.

Located in close proximity to the Mitchell County Specialty Clinic, the facility has its own parking lot, eliminating the need for dialysis patients to walk long distances to obtain care. The facility’s upgrade also includes the installation of a canopy that shelters the patient drop-off area and walkway, protecting patients from inclement weather.

 “Our goal is to provide the community a full continuum of healthcare services so that patients can receive quality care close to home,” said Mark Kimball, administrator, Mitchell County Hospital. “The upgrades to the facility allow us to improve the service we offer our patients.”

On Thursday, October 27, 2011, an open house and ribbon cutting will be held at the Mitchell Dialysis Facility to celebrate the newly renovated and expanded facility. The community is invited to attend.The ribbon cutting will be held at 4:30 and open house will last until 6pm.

Mitchell County Dialysis is one of five outpatient dialysis facilities in the region operated by Archbold.
