Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare (FSLH) is vacating their Oneida Dialysis Center in the Oneida Health and Wellness Building, located at 221 Broad Street in Oneida.

The Oneida Dialysis Center is part of FSLH’s Regional Dialysis Center and has 32 patients. FSLH is working to transition the patients to other FSLH outpatient dialysis centers in the system by the end of the month.

“Our goal is to make this a smooth transition for our patients,” said Lila Studnicka, executive director of The Regional Dialysis Center. “Even with advanced notice from the owners of the building we were unable to find an appropriate new space for the service. We apologize for any inconvenience this is causing our patients and their families, and we are doing our best to accommodate each patient’s needs throughout the transition.”

The Regional Dialysis Center at FSLH is the sole provider of dialysis treatment within a 25 mile radius of Utica. As one of the largest hospital-based dialysis programs in the country, the Center treats more than 450 patients and performs more than 70,000 dialysis treatments each year.
