USRC inaugurates new Gloucester dialysis centre in NJ
18 June 2021 -

Dialysis company US Renal Care (USRC) said on Thursday that it has expanded its dialysis care services with the opening of a new facility in Gloucester, New Jersey as well as requests the Biden Administration to expand COVID-19 vaccine distribution to dialysis facilities.

Located in an old church at 601 Berlin Cross Keys Road in Sicklerville, the company's new dialysis facility includes ten heated massage chairs with personal TVs and Wi-Fi for in–centre hemodialysis as well as a robust home programme run by experienced home dialysis nurses well-versed in-home modality options training and peritoneal dialysis.

The company added that the staff is trained in patient care and treatment options to ensure chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients understand the available options, including dialysis, transplant and palliative care. With the help of a treatment options education expert, the patients and their families will be able to choose the best care option to help slow the progression of CKD and improve their quality of life.

Additionally, the at home treatment allows patients more dietary liberties and often reduces the number of medications needed. Those interested in speaking with USRC staff about their kidney care and treatment options can contact the Gloucester centre at (848) 202–3080.
