Kidney Dialysis Unit Project 

Located on the Elbowoods Memorial Health campus in New Town, ND, the new 11,857 SF Kidney Dialysis Unit (KDU) will provide end stage renal dialysis treatment to enrolled MHA Nation members and broader community. The treatment program and facility are designed to achieve Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Certification to ensure eligibility for Medicare Coverage.

The facility includes 12 treatment stations (2 isolation treatment rooms), administration, treatment nursing space, touchdown space for visiting doctors, patient nutrition areas, and room for new state of the art water treatment and medical systems. It also features 2 fully equipped peritoneal home hemodialysis training rooms to educate patients on home dialysis program procedures that allow many to eventually provide their own home-based dialysis treatments.

The program treatment times and quantities will support up to 36 patients per day. The building features an enclosed drive-through garage to protect patients from inclement weather during drop-off and pick-up. The program will be jointly operated by the MHA Nation Health Department and Sanford Health Dialysis Nursing Administration.

This facility features a high efficiency thermal envelope, triple glazed high-performance windows, reclaimed lumber, packaged VAV AHU, DX cooling with LP-gas fired heating systems. Construction was completed in November 2023.
