State-of-the-Art Dialysis Close to Home
St. Francis Medical Center dedicated an outpatient dialysis unit for the treatment of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). This unit - Renal Center of Trenton, LLC - was established and is managed in partnership with Renal Ventures Management, LLC.
The Renal Center features 18 computerized hemodialysis stations, which include recliners, personal televisions and privacy curtains. The unit will also provide on-site training for patients in peritoneal, or home-based dialysis as well as a transplant referral program.

"The establishment of a renal center in Trenton is important in addressing the growth in the number of ESRD patients, attributed principally to the aging of thegeneral population," said Dr. Maniya.
"Additionally, the high incidence of the disease among fast growing segments of our population -- African-Americans, Asians, and Hispanics -- contribute further to the growth rate of seven percent per year, almost double the population growth rate."
Hours of Operation
The Renal Center of Trenton is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday 6am to 7:30pm and Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday 6am to 4:30pm.
