ShorePointe’s On-Site Dialysis Therapy

We strive to make dialysis just a part of your life, not your whole life.
At ShorePointe Health & Rehabilitation, we are excited to announce our new on-site Dialysis Therapy. Optalis has partnered with Heritage Dialysis to ensure its residents get the best dialysis care possible.
