The first of its kind in the Chippewa Valley, there are numerous benefits for our short-term rehabilitation and Regional Vent Center patients receiving their dialysis on-site. Instead of the traditional, three-day a week treatment in a dialysis facility, which takes up most of the day, those undergoing on-site hemodialysis at Dove Healthcare will spend less time traveling to and from dialysis and may be able to have shorter, more frequent treatments, giving them more time to focus on rehabilitation and the following potential benefits:
eliminate the stress and inconvenience associated with back and forth transportation to off-site clinic
improve rest and recovery time; medications, therapy, and meals remain on a consistent, personalized schedule every day
decrease community exposure to illnesses
free up more time for visiting with friends and family, engaging with hobbies, attending activities, and more
Through the years since Dove Healthcare's origination, it is clear our steady growth is a result of our consistent approach — defining what we do well, doing more of it as often as we can, and growing as our resources allow. We recognize that increasing value and continuously improving quality are essential to maintaining excellence.

Fresenius Kidney Care
Fresenius Kidney Care provides a registered nurse and dialysis technicians to deliver the on-site hemodialysis at both Dove Healthcare locations, as well as coordinating with a social worker, dietitian, and nephrologist/medical director to help manage the care of each patient. The credentialed attending nephrologist still follows their patient residing with us. If a nephrologist chooses not to be credentialed with Fresenius Kidney Care, then the medical director (of our dialysis sites in Chippewa Falls and Eau Claire) will be the attending while the patient resides with us. Upon discharge from Dove Healthcare, patients may return to their previous offsite dialysis clinic, in accordance with their treatment preferences.
