About Fresenius Kidney Care
The body's kidneys play a vital role in removing waste from the body, controlling blood pressure levels and balancing levels of certain chemicals such as potassium, sodium and bicarbonate. When disease or injury prevent the kidneys from doing their job, your doctor may prescribe dialysis. USA Health is affiliated with Fresenius Kidney Care to provide treatment for patients with kidney failure. This clinic is specifically designed to provide treatment to those patients who require dialysis in the evening and night hours due to their day-time or professional obligations. These patients are actually able to receive their treatment while sleeping.
The Fresenius Kidney Care hours of operation are Monday–Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Evening and weekend hours are also available to meet the needs of our patients.
