Regional Dialysis Centre



The new regional dialysis (RDC) centre provides patient-centred care and education in refurbished new facilities at Blacktown Hospital. 

It is located on Level 2 of the Administration & Education Building at Blacktown Hospital with an adjacent permit-holder parking area.

The new RDC was designed in partnership with patients, carers and staff, and includes a major community art project to help create a vibrant, positive and welcoming environment.

The location provides separation from the busy main hospital, improving access for dialysis patients from the local community who need to attend the centre several times a week.  

The new dialysis centre is a one-stop-shop for treatment and support and includes:
  • 22 treatment bays for dialysis in “pods” for easy management
  • A new satellite pharmacy so you no longer need to go to the main hospital for medications
  • Outpatients clinics to see your kidney doctor, your nurses, social worker and dietician
  • Facilities for patient training and education, consultation rooms and support areas.
The RDC provides more than 35,000 occasions of service every year to a catchment of more than 1.5 million people in Western Sydney and rural NSW.

A new in-centre dialysis unit is also under construction for inpatients who need dialysis, eliminating the need to transfer to Westmead for treatment.

Community welcome

In December 2016, we celebrated hte opening of the new centre with a smoking ceremony, ribbon cutting and community welcome. 

 

Coming soon to Mount Druitt Hospital

A new standalone community dialysis centre is currently under construction at Mount Druitt Hospital. It will provide welcoming, patient-friendly new facilities close to home for the local community and significantly reduce the need to travel out of the area for treatment. For more informaiton, speak to your healthcare team. Opening 2017.

H20 Healing

Our patients and families are working on a number of art projects to promote healing and wellness in our centre. A positive and uplifting environment is particularly important for our dialysis patients who spend many hours each week in the centre. One of our first projects will be an unique idea inspired by one of our doctors - a feature using waste water from dialysis treatment which cannot be re-used but is perfect for a water-themed work of art!
