Scope of Service
The Nephrology Service provides comprehensive subspecialty consultation and medical management for military beneficiaries, 18 years of age and older, with all types of kidney diseases, refractory hypertension, and complex electrolyte disorders. The Hemodialysis Unit is a vital part of the Nephrology Service and provides hemodialysis treatments for hospitalized patients with acute kidney injury or end-stage renal disease as well as a small group of outpatients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Inpatient nephrology consultation and hemodialysis is available 24/7.
A consult (referral) from your TRICARE Primary Care Provider is needed for outpatient Nephrology consultation, and referrals will be reviewed and dispositioned based on appointment availability.
