Nationally ranked care. Another way our love for kids just keeps on growing.


At SSM Health Cardinal Glennon, an expert team of physicians and nurses provide quality care for patients with renal failure, using dialysis as a bridge to kidney transplantation for children of all ages.

The outpatient pediatric Dialysis Unit is located on the third floor and can accommodate up to four patients at a time. Because dialysis patients are in the hospital for several hours at a time, we want to make sure your child is as comfortable as possible. We provide several resources and distractions:

Child Life Services

Dialysis Social Worker

DVD players and televisions

Laptop and video games

Shining Star School

Starlight Fun Center

Cardinal Glennon’s dialysis team is also responsible for providing dialysis to inpatients with portable dialysis machines. For families who choose to dialyze at home, education is provided and home peritoneal dialysis is arranged.
