Kidney dialysis center opens on S.E. Foster Road
For those whose kidneys are failing, dialysis is a lifesaver. And now there is a kidney dialysis center in Inner Southeast Portland: DaVita Kidney Care has opened a site at Foster Square; the local location is owned by "Garson Dialysis LLC", and it's available for patients at 6868 S.E. Foster Road, Suite 3.
The name of DaVita, the parent company, which began in 1999, translates to "giving life". The organization has over 20 years' experience providing cost-effective care to those suffering from severe kidney disease.
We each have two kidneys which work to moderate blood pressure, and regulate levels of salt and potassium in the blood, while also cleaning the blood. Dialysis helps people with damaged kidneys to prolong life by handling vital tasks ordinarily managed by healthy kidneys. Garson's specialty is listed as End-Stage Renal Disease treatment (ESRD) for those whose only other option is a kidney transplant. It is considered an "ambulatory healthcare facility".
DaVita says they strive to improve patients' quality of life thorough innovative clinical care and by offering "integrated treatment plans, personalized care teams, and convenient health-management service". The organization reports that it supports many programs dedicated to creating positive, sustainable change in communities – "by developing programs to enrich lives for those with chronic kidney problems".
