Outpatient Pediatric Dialysis Program
McLane Children's Hospital offers a dedicated outpatient pediatric dialysis program for children suffering from chronic kidney disease.
Our program offers children of all ages:
- Hemodialysis – performed in the dialysis center three times a week
- Peritoneal dialysis – performed at home and monitored in the dialysis center at least once per month
Specially designed for children
We understand how important comfort is for your child who is undergoing dialysis for hours on end, several times a week. That's why we created a dedicated space designed just for children and their families. Our comfortable stations are located in a colorful environment that includes a special mural to help make your experience warm and kid-friendly.
Dedicated team of experts
Our program includes the expertise of a dedicated group of professionals from different disciplines, including:
pediatric nephrologists, dedicated pediatric nurses, social workers, dietitians and
child life professionals.
Your child will receive one-on-one care from a dedicated registered nurse who is specially trained in pediatric dialysis. We also have a teacher from Temple Independent School District who will help school-age children keep up with their school work while spending hours receiving treatment.
Our services are offered in the
Scott & White Clinic & Dialysis Center - Temple South Loop. For more information about the pediatric dialysis program, please contact
