A capillary presence
The Nephrology and Dialysis Service of the EOC is provided at its centres located throughout the Canton. The patient receives comprehensive treatment with high-quality medical and nursing care and networked management of complex kidney diseases, thanks to the close collaboration between professionals based in Bellinzona, Locarno, Lugano and Mendrisio.
A complete kidney treatment service
Patients, treated as in-patients or out-patients, have access to various types of services including haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. The EOC service is characterised by a multidisciplinary approach to the patient’s treatment, and various complementary services such as dieticians, physio- and ergotherapists, social workers and also the psychosocial service are always available.
The certainty of being treated in hospital
Using the EOC’s Nephrology and Dialysis Service does not only mean having dialysis treatment, but also entrusting yourself to all-round care and skills which only a hospital facility can offer.
The centres collaborate closely with other departments in the hospital, such as A&E and internal medicine with all its specialisations, surgery and intensive care. The patient is therefore assured continuity and consistency of care, as well as prompt and effective attention in case of need.
