A renal dialysis center is a hospital unit approved by Medicare, Medicaid and third-party payers to furnish the full spectrum of diagnostic, therapeutic and rehabilitative services required for the care of end-stage renal disease dialysis patients (including inpatient dialysis furnished directly or indirectly under arrangement). A hospital does not need to provide renal transplantation to qualify as a renal dialysis center.


The dialysis service could include:

  • inpatient dialysis,
  • outpatient dialysis
  • self-dialysis
  • home dialysis.

The service is provided by the facilities own staff or through individuals contracted to furnish such services for the facility, as stated in 42 CFR 405.2102.
