The Manitoba Renal Program (MRP) is made up of a team of health-care professionals working together to provide the highest quality kidney care and kidney education. The MRP’s services include kidney health outreach, kidney health clinics, and dialysis programs both at home and in hospital
Kidney health outreach initiatives are offered throughout the province to increase awareness in an effort to prevent chronic kidney disease and the progression of existing chronic kidney disease.
Kidney health clinics join newly diagnosed and/or progressing patients with an interdisciplinary team of health-care providers to treat problems resulting from low kidney function and begin therapies to prevent, delay and/or decrease the development of kidney failure.
We jointly operate hemodialysis units in 20 locations throughout Winnipeg and Manitoba. We also have home dialysis training units in Winnipeg that train and support home dialysis patients who reside in all corners of the province.
For a complete listing of our sites, including dialysis units, Kidney Health Clinics and rural facilities please see our Locations page.

- social workers

- aboriginal liaison and spiritual care providers
- fitness and wellness coordinator
