Center Will Help Treat Hundreds of Local Kidney Patients Requiring Dialysis;

More Than 700 North Dakota Residents Suffer From Kidney Disease

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. Nov. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- DaVita, Inc., one of the nation's largest independent providers of dialysis services in the United States, announced today its opening of the first free-standing dialysis center in the Fargo-Moorhead area -- increasing the number of outpatient dialysis stations available locally for kidney disease patients by nearly 50 percent.

"We constantly strive to be the healthcare provider, partner and employer of choice," said Scott Krebsbach, Regional Operations Director for DaVita. "By opening this new, state-of-the-art facility, we look forward to working with our clinicians and partners to improve patients' kidney health, quality of life and overall health outcomes."
