The Therapeutic Blood Treatment Center spans 9,000 square feet and houses two different treatment areas: blood and marrow transplant apheresis and dialysis/apheresis. The bone marrow transplant space offers nine private treatment rooms and the dialysis/apheresis care area has ten rooms. Each of the spaces includes a nurse station, storage area, break room, locker room, and water/biomedical area. High-end millwork and sheet vinyl flooring tie-in the newly renovated facility to the rest of the hospital. The center is now Kansas City’s largest hospital-based dialysis and apheresis center.
