Blacktown dialysis centre celebrates first birthday

Blacktown Hospital Regional Dialysis Centre staff and volunteers with patient Pat.

The regional dialysis centre, located at Blacktown Hospital, celebrated on Monday. May 1, marking a whole year in their new facilities on Level 2 of the administration and education building.

Patients, carers and staff were treated to cake and coffee during the day – a shout out to Fresh Plus for providing hot drinks for our patients: a special treat as some are have restrictions on their food and drink.

The centre has 32 staff (nurses and allied health) who currently care for 88 patients visiting three times a week, along with 350 home therapy patients who attend the centre regularly for review.

Patients love the new space, especially the peaceful surroundings and Being and Belonging art displays.
