Dialysis Access Institute


The Dialysis Access Institute (DAI) was established at the Regional Medical Center in March 2011 with Dialysis Access Specialist John Ross, MD to serve patients with end-stage renal disease. In its first year, the Dialysis Access Institute team performed more than 3,000 procedures, and physicians from throughout the world visited RMC to be trained in
these procedures.

On October 21, 2013 the new, $6.8 million, 16,000-square-foot Dialysis Access Institute, a world-class facility, opened at the Regional Medical Center. It enables DAI to grow its services for end-stage renal disease patients and decrease patient wait times. DAI is the only facility of its kind dedicated solely to the care of end-stage renal disease patients.

The Dialysis Access Institute is accredited by the American Society of Diagnostic & Interventional Nephrology as a hemodialysis vascular access training center.
