Southampton Hospital’s Regional Dialysis Center has been recognized for the third consecutive year for its patient safety program at its Hampton Bays Atrium site.
The Five-Diamond Award is presented by IPRO’s End Stage Renal Disease Network of New York, which is dedicated to assisting dialysis and renal transplantation centers in establishing and maintaining high standards of care for ESRD patients. The ESRD Network’s interactive program is designed so that each dialysis facility completes one module at a time and submits documentation for review. The quality of each module determines the number of “diamonds” awarded, with a maximum of five diamonds within the participation period.
Licensed by the New York Department of Health, the H=hospital’s state-of-the-art Regional Dialysis Center offers a full range of treatments in an environment designed for comfort. Individual televisions, WiFi access, as well as specially designed reclining chairs with a special gel cushion, donated by the J. Couper Lord Foundation are signed to enhance patient comfort.
“We have a great team that strives to give each patient the best care possible,” said Dr. Gaylord Hoffert, a board-certified nephrologist and the Center’s medical director.
