FORT SMITH REGIONAL DIALYSIS CENTER

This former office facility for Altell Communications was completely remodeled for a 52 patient station End Stage Renal Dialysis Center. The Dialysis Center has two treatment rooms, one housing 28 patient stations plus an isolation room and one housing 22 patients. Each of these treatment rooms is served by an RO Water Room which constantly circulates RO water to each patient station. The indirect lighting, multi-zoned heating/cooling system and ceiling mounted televisions help make the patients as comfortable as possible during their multi-hour stay while connected to a dialysis machine. The facility operates six days a week from early morning until late evening. Thus, the high patient traffic meant using durable, yet attractive interior finishes, which have low-to-no VOC's and are permissible by health code/department regulations.
