Dialysis Unit

We are responsible for the treatment of dialysis patients in the Pirkanmaa Hospital District. We also direct the operations of the satellite dialysis units on our region and offer dialysis services for tourists.

Patients usually come to treatment 3 – 4 times a week. We do treatments from Monday to Saturday, on morning and evening shifts. Patients come from home, from another hospital or from wards to treatment.

Our aim is for patients to participate in the planning and implementation of their own care. Family members are welcome to acquaint themselves with the care of the patient and the operation of the unit.

Our new service is OmaHemo, where patients can conduct fully independent hemodialysis at their own schedule.

We mainly treat adult patients but, if needed, we also have the ability to treat paediatric patients as well.

Facilities

The dialysis unit is located at the E-building. We have a total of 52 hemodialysis places, which are located on the 1st and 2nd floors.

The self-made dialysis and the OmaHemo are located on the 1st floor. The treatment and follow-up of home-dialysis patients also takes place on the 1st floor. Assisted dialysis is located on the 2nd floor.
