New Dialysis Center to Open in Batavia
Written by Dan Fischer on May 8, 2019
Fresenius Kidney Care, the dialysis division of Fresenius Medical Care North America and the nation’s leading network of dialysis facilities, invites the community to attend an Open House celebration on Friday, May 17 at its new clinic at 4185 Veterans Memorial Drive in Batavia.
The open house will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The clinic, which can treat a maximum of 102 patients a week, enables Fresenius Kidney Care’s local team of expert medical professionals to better serve the Genesee County area’s growing dialysis community. In New York, nearly 30,000 patients require dialysis treatment.
Local experienced medical professionals available to discuss patient services and the latest dialysis treatment options, including:
- In-center dialysis – provides the reassurance of staff-assisted treatment and labs all in one place
- At-home dialysis – offers greater independence, convenience and health benefits to patients who would otherwise spend up to 12 hours a week in a center receiving the life-sustaining care
- How the center’s care team meets patients’ physical and emotional needs by individualizing their care
- How Fresenius Kidney Care Batavia strives to empower people to thrive on and live the healthiest, fullest way possible – with kidney disease treatments that fit in with life, not the other way around.
- How FreseniusRx renal-trained pharmacists can help dialysis patients manage their medications.
Tour the clinic and meet the treatment team and see the treatment rooms learn about other services offered at the center, such as hemodialysis travel services, and ongoing educational programs. Light refreshments will be available available.

About Kidney Disease and Dialysis
One in seven adults will develop chronic kidney disease, with many not detecting the condition until they have lost more than 90 percent of their kidney function. More than 660,000 Americans live with end stage renal disease, or kidney failure, which requires either a transplant or dialysis to remove waste from the blood, maintain safe levels of potassium and sodium and control blood pressure. Currently, 468,000 people in the U.S. depend on dialysis as a life sustaining treatment. The leading causes of kidney disease are high blood pressure and diabetes.
