25 Jan Dialysis Clinic, Inc., Opening New Pointe North Clinic
New dialysis clinic will give the community better access to kidney care
Albany, Georgia – Dialysis Clinic, Inc. (DCI), the nation’s largest non-profit dialysis provider, is building a new 8,500 square foot dialysis facility in Albany, Georgia. Located at 650 Pointe North Boulevard, the new clinic will improve access to kidney care services by providing another location for patients to receive dialysis.
The new 19 station facility, DCI Pointe North, will provide in-center hemodialysis and accommodate patients from Dougherty county and surrounding areas. Amenities for the clinic include flat screen televisions at each station and free Wi-Fi access during treatment. Dr. Mufaddal Kheda will oversee dialysis patient care as the medical director for the clinic.
“DCI has a longstanding commitment to Albany residents and we are glad to provide options that will meet their needs along the kidney care continuum,” said Adrian Outridge, DCI Area Operations Director. “For people in the kidney disease stages who want to learn how to delay dialysis or get a transplant, we have REACH Kidney Care of Albany. For people with kidney failure that choose to dialyze in the comfort of their own home, we have DCI Clark Home Dialysis Training. And, for patients that prefer to let our experienced staff care for them in-center, we will now have six conveniently located DCI dialysis units within 20 miles of Albany.”
DCI Pointe North construction is scheduled for completion on March 9, 2018. The clinic anticipates accepting new patients mid-April 2018, once state licensure and Medicare certification is complete.
