Dialysis Facility Compare

Dialysis Facility Compare links consumers with detailed information about the 4,700 dialysis facilities certified by Medicare, and allows users to compare facilities in a geographic region. Users can review information about the size of the facility, the types of dialysis offered, the facilities’ ownership, and whether the facility offers evening treatment shifts. Consumers can also compare dialysis facilities based on three key quality measures- how well patients at a facility have their anemia under control, how well patients at a facility have waste removed from their blood during hemodialysis, and whether the patients treated at a facility generally live as long as expected. Dialysis Facility Compare also links users to resources that support family members and specialized groups kidney patients.
