(SPENCER, IA) -- The Spencer, Iowa hospital is getting ready to open a new dialysis center.

For over 20 years, patients in need of dialysis treatments have gotten care at the Warner Dialysis Center in the hospital.  In July, patients will transfer to a newly renovated facility designed to meet the growing demand for services.

Prior to opening for patient care, the public is invited to an open house and tour on Tuesday, July 10 between 4:30-6:30 PM.

The hospital opened a second Warner Dialysis Center located in Spirit Lake in 2002.

Both locations are named after Milt and Ethel Warner, longtime Spencer residents and community leaders who made a donation to support offering dialysis services locally.

The new dialysis center is located in Spencer at 1721 West 18th Street.
