New Albany, Ohio (6/1/2017) – DaVita Kidney Care, a division of DaVita Inc. (NYSE: DVA) and a leading provider of kidney care services that is committed to improving the quality of life for those diagnosed with chronic kidney disease (CKD), announced the opening of a new dialysis center located at 6530 West Campus Oval, Suite 100 in New Albany.
The new center will have eight dialysis stations, four home suites and will dialyze patients on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, with the possibility of expanded treatment days.
Kidney failure, also known as end stage renal disease (ESRD), is a fatal condition unless a kidney transplant is available or a patient undergoes dialysis, in which a machine filters toxins and fluids from the blood outside the body. In-center dialysis patients are treated four hours a day, three times a week.
An estimated 20 million U.S. adults have CKD, which can progress to ESRD. Most are unaware of their condition, as the disease is often symptomless until the kidneys fail. Groups at the highest risk for ESRD include those with diabetes or hypertension, as well as older adults, African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans.
