GRH's renal program is a regional centre with chronic kidney disease (CKD) services for those living in Waterloo Region and Wellington County. It is one of the largest renal programs within a community hospital in Ontario.

Our program consists of in-centre, home and satellite hemodialysis units. We also have outpatient peritoneal dialysis and chronic kidney disease clinics.

These units are located at different campuses/sites as outlined below:

  • GRH KW Campus, 835 King Street We­­st, Kitchener
  • GRH Freeport Campus, 3570 King Street East, Kitchener
  • Guelph Site, 73 Delhi Street, Guelph
  • Palmerston Site, 500 White’s Road, Palmerston

Our KW Campus has several parking options for you depending on the length of your treatment and/or hospital stay. Click here to view our various parking options.

Our program provides a continuum of services that include:
  • The renal clinics which medically support the management of pre-end stage kidney disease and transplant work-up. The multidisciplinary team educates and supports patients requiring dialysis.
  • The peritoneal dialysis clinics which medically support the management of peritoneal dialysis at home.
  • A full care in-centre hemodialysis unit which medically supports inpatient and outpatient hemodialysis services.
  • A home hemodialysis program which medically supports the management of hemodialysis at home.
  • Three satellite units that allow dialysis patients in the Guelph, south Kitchener and Palmerston areas to receive care closer to home.
  • We also support patients who require hemodialysis care from St. Mary’s General Hospital’s cardiovascular intensive care unit (CVICU).

The Grand River Hospital Foundation provides televisions throughout the hemodialysis units for you while you receive your treatment. Visit our renal channel providing health information about chronic kidney disease.
