(SALEM, Ore.) - Due to kidney failure, dialysis is an everyday reality for many in the Salem, Oregon area. The establishment of a new dialysis facility in Salem, Fresenius Medical Care West Salem, means new patients will have more options for their treatment.

The new dialysis clinic will open with a Health Fair on Saturday, April 18th from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Fresenius Medical Care North America operates the nation’s leading network of dialysis facilities. Dialysis is a life-sustaining process that cleans waste products from the blood, removes extra fluids, and controls the body’s chemistry when a person’s kidneys fail. Dialysis patients typically require treatment on an ongoing basis unless they receive a kidney transplant.

The Fresenius Medical Care West Salem is described as an advanced dialysis clinic that will serve the area’s growing population of patients with chronic kidney disease.

It features: 13 dialysis treatment stations, with reclining, heated treatment chairs with massage features.

The CHAIRSIDE™ online charting system with touch-screen monitors at dialysis stations allow clinical staff to accurately enter and securely track critical patient information.

The center will also feature single use of dialyzers, unlike other facilities that may disinfect and re-use them, as well as an emergency back-up electrical generator to help continue critical patient care in the event of a power outage.

“At this new Fresenius Medical Care facility, patients will benefit from the latest treatment methods while receiving excellent care from our dedicated team,” said Lance Dicker, M.D., medical director of Fresenius Medical Care.

“Dialysis patients spend many hours receiving treatment each week, so we are pleased to offer this level of care in a more convenient location for people in the Salem area.” Dr. Dicker is a nephrologist affiliated with Kidney Care Physicians in Salem.

The facility is located at 1060 2nd street NW, Salem, OR 97304. For more information on the clinic, which is now accepting new patients, call 503-763-3257 or 1-866-4-DIALYSIS (1-866-434-2597).
