This listing uses the data from the ESRD Renal Provider File compiled and distributed by CMS . This web page was designed to help patients and facility staff find potential dialysis services for patients who are traveling or relocating. It allows the user to search a selection from the CMS database to find dialysis facilities in the city of their destination. A mapping function and driving instructions are linked to each facility. The Advanced section is helpful for researchers and students, and was updated every six months. It was designed with the cooperation of The Forum of ESRD Networks. The database also gives facilities a chance to report errors directly to CMS data specialists through The Nephron Information Center.
In developing and maintaining this service, the Nephron Information Center wishes to thank those members of CMS who have worked very hard to create organize and correct the Standard Information Management System and the Networks for updating. In weeks to come the database will be upated monthly. We will update our error reporting system so that you will be able to report any errors that you find.
