DCI has Lowest Hospitalization & Mortality Ratios

According to the 2011 USRDS report, “Among the large dialysis organizations, Dialysis Clinic, Inc. (DCI) continues to have the lowest statistically significant standardized hospitalization ratios (SHRs) and standardized mortality ratios (SMRs).”


For the last nine years, DCI has surpassed other providers in the direct comparison of several quality indicators. The most recent data provides evidence of DCI’s continued commitment to saving lives and keeping patients out of the hospital.


The report also reviewed the percentage of units remaining under consistent ownership and found, “The most consistent ownership remains that of Dialysis Clinic, Inc., with nearly 90 percent of units in 2009 owned for five years or longer.”


Among large dialysis organizations, DCI has the lowest per person per year costs for erythropoiesis stimulating agents and IV iron.


DCI is the largest non-profit dialysis provider and the third largest dialysis company in the United States. DCI’s mission is to serve the ESRD patient. “We are a non-profit service organization. The care of the patient is our reason for existence.”
