Dialysis provider Renal Ventures Management has recently opened the Renal Center of Englewood, LLC in Englewood, N.J. The center, which serves peritoneal dialysis patients managing their care at home, is the first stand-alone PD-only center in the state.
“Patients who come through our doors can expect individual attention from staff that is highly trained who help them navigate the specific needs of living on peritoneal dialysis,” said Louis Jan, M.D., medical director for the Renal Center of Englewood. “We are here to help guide and educate our patients to be experts in how to manage their own care. We take great pride in supporting them at every step in the process.”

In their poster, “Thriving on PD,” presented at the Annual Dialysis Conference, Mary Jo Miller-Grandfield, RN, BSN, and her dialysis team at Renal Venture Management’s Fort Dodge/Storm Lake, Iowa clinic, set out to spread the word about the value of home dialysis in their mainly rural community.
A grand opening for the clinic will be held Wednesday, April 9, 2014, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at 300 Grand Avenue, Suite 101, in Englewood. Staff will be giving tours of the clinic and of Bergen Kidney Center’s new offices, located next door. Bergen Kidney Center is a nephrology practice that specializes in treating a range of kidney related diseases and manages end-stage renal patients on dialysis. Staff from both centers, patients, and local elected officials will be on-hand for the grand opening.
