Long Island's Premier Kidney Dialysis Treatment Option
The Division of Nephrology and Hypertension provides inpatient and outpatient kidney dialysis treatment for patients on hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, as well as continuous renal replacement therapies for hospitalized patients with various kidney disorders. Inpatient dialysis and continuous renal replacement therapy is provided at Winthrop University Hospital. Outpatient hemodialysis care is provided at the Mineola Dialysis Unit, Bethpage Dialysis Unit, Sun Harbor Dialysis Unit and Glen Gariff Dialysis Unit. Dr. Louis Imbriano is Medical Director for the units at Sun Harbor and Glen Gariff. We also have a home dialysis program with peritoneal dialysis and home hemodialysis available through our unit in Mineola.
An Award Winning Kidney Dialysis Center
As an example of the high quality care provided by the Winthrop dialysis program, data from the main kidney dialysis center in Mineola reveals that the hemodialysis program meets or exceeds the results both locally and nationally in all areas of Treatment Practices and has a standardized mortality ratio of 0.64, well below the national average. Another notable feature of the program is the high rate at which our patients get kidney transplants. The transplantation rate for the Mineola unit is 108% above the expected rate. The Winthrop Dialysis Network has also recently been awarded the distinction of 5 Diamond Status by the IPRO End Stage Renal Disease Network of New York focusing on patient safety. Amongst a total of 243 dialysis units in New York State, Winthrop is one of only 18 facilities in New York State to achieve this status. This prestigious award was earned by all 4 of Winthrop’s outpatient dialysis centers throughout Long Island and reflects on the great commitment and hard work by all levels of staff. This award recognizes Winthrop’s strong commitment to providing the highest quality care in a safe environment for patients with end stage renal disease.
