Prairie Lakes Healthcare Foundation is excited to announce BASH (Building A Superior Healthcare System) 2023 will be held on Saturday, March 25th at the Watertown Event Center.

About BASH 2023

dialysis systemKidney Dialysis MachineBASH 2023 will have a whimsical golden theme, encouraging guests to “dial in on dialysis.” Proceeds from the event will be used to purchase new kidney dialysis machines (artificial kidneys) for Watertown Kidney Dialysis at the Prairie Lakes Healthcare System.

Dialysis is a treatment for people whose kidneys are failing and don’t filter blood the way they should. As a result, wastes and toxins build up in the bloodstream. Dialysis does the work of the kidneys, removing waste products and excess fluid from the blood. One type of dialysis is hemodialysis, where a machine removes blood from your body, filters it through a dialyzer (artificial kidney), and returns cleaned blood to your body. This 3–4-hour process takes place at Prairie Lakes Healthcare System, three times a week.

All proceeds raised during BASH 2023 will be used to purchase these lifesaving kidney dialysis machines!
