Our mission is to deliver superior care that improves the quality of life of every patient, every day, setting the standard by which others in the healthcare industry are judged. It is that focus on providing superior care to patients that drives our work every day. It is why we advocate for people living with kidney disease and the dialysis community at all levels of government. Our Government Affairs team collaborates with centers across the country to provide them with tools and information to support these advocacy efforts.
Education is key to our approach, and providing center tours for state legislators, members of Congress, and other government leaders is just one of the ways we work to educate. Center tours allow these leaders to see firsthand the importance of end stage renal disease treatment for our patients.
We’ve adapted to the current environment and have moved these tours to a virtual format for both state- and federal-level members. We started these tours nearly six years ago and continue to receive positive feedback from government leaders who enjoy and benefit from being able to see how a dialysis center operates, and learn about our focus on quality care, healthcare overall, and patients.
