Our Team

Primary Care Team

At the core of who we are is a small dedicated primary care team that, in their own words, are driven by a shared purpose to celebrate life and provide the best care. This group of primarily registered nurses and dialysis assistants foster an environment that is uniquely supportive, welcoming and adaptable. By collaborating with care teams from our referring hospital programs, including allied health members, we are able to respond to the needs of our communities and ensure equitable access to care for all our patients and families.

To learn more about the different roles at each of our sites or how we deliver care in partnership with our various hospital renal programs please speak with a Coordinator or a member of our Leadership team.

Nephrologist Advisors and Directors

We draw on the collective expertise of upwards of 40 Nephrologists that support patients at DMC, each of whom act as an advisor and resource to our team in delivering care. Amongst our Nephrologist advisors, we have designated Medical Directors, Quality and Committee Advisors. These roles provide leadership in overseeing medical policies for the facilities, supervising the review of patient care and acting as a site resource. They also ensure the services provided at each site are in alignment with legislative and clinical requirements, are members / chair our quality assurance committee and personally attend the facilities.
