Fresenius Medical Care North America, the nation’s leading network of dialysis facilities, recently named its Fresenius Medical Care Martin facility a Center of Excellence for achieving the highest standards in patient care in 2010. These annual awards recognize the facilities that perform the best, based on multiple objective measures of dialysis clinical quality.
All Fresenius Medical Care dialysis clinics share the company’s UltraCare® mission of delivering excellent, patient-centered care through innovative programs, the latest technology, continuous quality improvement and a focus on superior customer service.
This award-winning facility, Fresenius Medical Care Martin, is located at 113 EC Thurmond Cove.
“Our number one priority at Fresenius Medical Care is delivering high quality care to our patients so they can be as successful as possible on dialysis, and lead rewarding lives. Our Center of Excellence award distinguishes the facilities that achieve the best clinical results through the dedication and hard work of the staff,” said Keith Alderman, regional vice president for Fresenius Medical Care.
Fresenius Medical Care has established high standards of clinical quality company wide, in keeping with those published by the Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative (KDOQI) of the National Kidney Foundation, according to a press release. Fresenius Medical Care selects Centers of Excellence facilities by reviewing the patients’ outcome measures such as dialysis adequacy, control of anemia, nutritional status, vascular access, patient satisfaction and transplant education.

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.
