Fresenius Kidney Care Hosts Open House at Relocated and Expanded Dialysis At St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital
Fresenius Kidney Care, the dialysis division of Fresenius Medical Care North America and the nation’s leading network of dialysis facilities, hosted an Open House celebration Wednesday at its newly expanded clinic in Cornwall, relocated from Newburgh, NY.
The clinic, which now includes a home hemodialysis option for patients, can treat a maximum of 200 patients a week, enabling Fresenius Kidney Care’s local team of expert medical professionals to better serve the Cornwall area’s growing dialysis community. Fresenius Kidney Care strives to empower people to thrive and live in the healthiest, fullest way possible – with kidney disease treatments that fit in with life, not the other way around. At-home dialysis – offers greater independence, convenience and health benefits to patients who would otherwise spend up to 12 hours a week in a center receiving the life-sustaining care.
