Randolph Health adds inpatient services

ASHEBORO – TeleNephrology consultations and dialysis for inpatient hospitalizations are being added as part of expanded services at Randolph Health.

The hospital has partnered with Renasolve and nephrologist Dr. Rubin Chandran to provide inpatient nephrology services. Renasolve specializes in providing daily 24-hour inpatient nephrology and TeleNephrology services to rural communities, according to Randolph Health.

This is the first time the hospital has offered these services even when the hospital was under different ownership, spokeswoman Paula Richards said.

The hospital’s announcement said this will “allow patients to remain in their local community – close to family and close to home. Our goal is to improve patient care and bring necessary access to nephrology specialists to our inpatient population, eliminating the need for patients and their families to travel long distances.”

Randolph Health’s nephrologists and kidney care team have extensive clinical expertise in all aspects of nephrology, according to information from the hospital.

Richards said the services don’t extend to outpatient levels at this time.
