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 a comprehensive health care team.
