The nephrologists who work in our service travel to Newfoundland to provide pediatric nephrology care in St. John’s. Our patients in the Maritimes travel to the IWK for care. Our service has links to the Kidney Foundation of Canada which provides support to families who have a child with severe kidney disease.
