About the VHA Kidney Program

Nephrology, or kidney medicine, is a specialty care service provided by the Veteran's Health Administration (VHA) which includes the care and treatment of patients with acute or chronic kidney disease including dialysis.

Our services are all provided under the expert knowledge of Nephrologists (kidney doctors), who have had extensive training and education in the care of people with kidney disease and in the management of dialysis. This website provides convenient and quick access to a range of kidney-related resources within VA's healthcare system, including:

Mission: The VHA Kidney Program's mission is to improve the quality and consistency of healthcare services delivered to Veterans with kidney disease nationwide. The VHA Kidney Program provides kidney-related services to dialysis centers throughout VA's medical centers. Professional guidance and services are available in the form of consultation and policies developed by VA kidney experts. These experts are dedicated to furthering the understanding of kidney disease, its impact on Veterans, and developing treatments to help patients manage disease symptoms. In addition, the VHA Kidney Program provides VA healthcare professionals with clinical care, education, research, and informatics resources to improve healthcare at local VA dialysis facilities.
