PEI Renal Program

If you or a loved one requires dialysis, investigation, or management of kidney disease, the PEI Renal Program is a community-based service that can help you.  

What services are offered?

Depending on your need, there are two types of dialysis services you can access, peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis. These services provide you with assistance and support from nurses, and are coordinated through the Provincial Renal Program Coordinator.

What is the Provincial Renal Clinic?

The Provincial Renal Clinic investigates and aides in the management of your renal (kidney) disease. The Renal Clinic nurses will work with you along with a dietitian, social worker, and nephrologists to offer you holistic patient-centered care in your renal disease treatment.

Where can I get dialysis?

Peritoneal dialysis is done in your home and is available in your community. To access this service, contact the Provincial Renal Clinic in your area.
