Heart of the Rockies Regional Dialysis Center
High quality dialysis and kidney services close to home
The Heart of the Rockies Regional Dialysis Center is located on the second
floor of the hospital. The unit is owned by the medical center but managed
by Sanderling Renal Services. Sanderling specializes in bringing high
quality dialysis and nephrology (kidney) services to rural communities.
David Kanar, M.D., an internist and nephrologist on the hospital's medical staff, serves
as medical director of the dialysis clinic.
"The most recent community health needs assessment conducted by our
hospital identified dialysis as the top service that residents wanted
to see available locally," said hospital CEO Bob Morasko. "Local
residents with end-stage kidney disease have been traveling to Canon City,
Alamosa or the Front Range three days a week for dialysis treatment. This
can be a real hardship, especially in bad weather. We are very pleased
that we can now provide this service locally."
