The mission of our dialysis unit is simple -- to improve the quality of life for people with kidney disease. The Wilbarger General Dialysis of Vernon unit is ranked in the top 10% of all dialysis centers nationwide, having received this elite recognition from the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services. The honor is based on the unit’s achievement on the impressive Five Star quality rating. The Five Star rating is determined through a federal scoring system that measures a variety of diverse indicators of program and clinical quality.
The dialysis unit also has a 5 Diamond Safety Rating from the End-Stage Renal Disease Network. This rating is based on staff members receiving training and then educating the patients on how to take care of themselves.
