Private Dialysis Clinic coming soon

The territory is getting a private dialysis clinic.

The LBJ Dialysis clinic is currently filled and the hospital has no immediate plans to expand.

New dialysis patients have limited options; seek treatment off island or remain on island and die from lack of treatment.

This shortage of dialysis service has prompted a group of local business entrepreneurs, medical professionals and local investors to begin the process of setting up and operating a private dialysis clinic.

The Managing Director of the new clinic is Chris Fisher.

The dialysis management group has tentatively identified a location in the Ottoville area in order to make the clinic more accessible to patients on the west side.
