Hemodialysis Access Management


At First Coast Cardiovascular Institute (FCCI), we hold a 10-year tradition of caring for patients with chronic kidney disease. We have performed thousands of hemodialysis access management procedures in our outpatient catherization laboratories in both Duval and Putnam counties.  We have successfully reduced the infection rate, hospital trips and catheters for our patients. We are able to do this through the latest advancements in medicine as well as immediate response to our patients’ needs.

What sets FCCI apart is the combination of a top-quality access management facility coupled with a team of board-certified cardiologists. Our cardiologists work in close collaboration with your nephrologists and dialysis center. Your care team receives immediate feedback, ensuring your care is always comprehensive and expedited.
