Division of nephrology

Satellite Dialysis Clinics

The Division of Nephrology is affiliated with a non-profit dialysis supplier, Dialyisis Clinics Inc. (DCI) based in Nashville, TN.  This affiliation began with one of the earliest DCI Dialysis Units in the system in 1974.  The DCI program in Charleston has grown to a current program of six ambulatory outpatient hemodialysis and support for our home hemodialysis training program and our outpatient peritoneal dialysis training and support. The faculty of the Division of Nephrology serve as Medical Directors for each of the DCI units in our system.
