The Ivinson Memorial Hospital Dialysis Center is rated by Medicare.gov Facility Compare as a five-star facility; one of just three five-star dialysis centers in the state of Wyoming.

“I could not be prouder of the employees’ work ethic providing the best healthcare possible to patients,” said Leslie Comly, the Ivinson Memorial Hospital Dialysis Director.

The rating is not based on a set scale, but rather on how each facility stacks up against the average care provided.  For example: a three-star rating is average, while a one-star rating is below-average and a five-star rating reflects measured outcomes well above average as compared to other facilities.

According to a press release, the 9-station IMH Dialysis Center is “small enough so each patient receives specialized, tailored attention, but large enough to house innovative, advanced technology and treatment offerings.”

The Dialysis Department was opened in 1999 and provides outpatient hemodialysis for both local residents and visiting patients.  A medical director who is board-certified in nephrology and a certified nephrology nurse lead the department.

The two other five-star dialysis centers in Wyoming are Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County/Dialysis in Rock Springs and the Big Horn Basin Regional Dialysis Center in Cody.
