libn.com – Long Beach Medical opening dialysis center
Long Beach Medical Center is putting the finishing touches on the first chronic dialysis center on Long Beach, expected to open in August.
The 162-bed hospital is funding the $1.4 million dialysis center with a combination of a Health Care Efficiency and Affordability Law grant and donations.
Long Beach already provides dialysis for inpatients. But the new center will allow it to care for an increasing number outpatients who require dialysis, typically three times a week.
