DCI clinic to open in Waverly, Tennessee
(Waverly, TENNESSEE) Dialysis Clinic, Inc., (DCI) started construction June 2013 on their latest dialysis facility at 505 West Main Street, Waverly, TN. The anticipated completion date for construction is set for late February 2014.
DCI Administrator Nick Jiran, says, “We are proud to be able to provide treatment in the Waverly, TN, area. We don’t have an official opening date at this time, yet there is excitement surrounding the opening of our newest facility and we want to share the upcoming opportunity with the public.”
The DCI Waverly clinic hours are anticipated to be Monday, Wednesday, and Friday with the first shift beginning at 6a.m. The hours will be expanded to accommodate patient needs as dialysis patients transfer into the facility.
DCI Waverly is a brand new 16 station dialysis center with 1 isolation station. The facility will offer in-center hemodialysis and home peritoneal dialysis training. Patients receiving in-center treatment will enjoy individual televisions, heated dialysis treatment chairs, and the beauty of the upscale design.
The Waverly Clinic is centrally located, 25 to 45 miles from another clinic, easing the burden of a commute to treatment.
“Currently, many patients drive as much as an hour each way to reach a dialysis facility. DCI Waverly will be more convenient for the patients in this region,” states Nick.
Starting in March 2014, the staff will provide treatment to one patient while awaiting the official Medicare survey. Once the survey is complete, the facility will be allowed to accept patients who have Medicare insurance for treatment.
“We have hired patient care staff, many of whom are from the Waverly and surrounding area, which are currently working in our DCI Dickson clinic. They are now taking care of approximately 20 patients that will be transferring to the new clinic.”
Nick goes on to say, “We strive to provide excellent patient care in all of our facilities. The clinic medical supervision will be under the guidance of our Medical Directors, Drs. Ashish Soni and Ling Yu. They, with the support of an experienced patient care staff under the leadership of our Nurse Manager, Theresa Langford, look forward to taking great care of our patients and treating them like family.”
