American Renal Associates Opens Newest Clinics

BEVERLY, Massachusetts – January 2015: American Renal Associates, LLC (“ARA”), a Massachusetts-based provider of outpatient dialysis services, announced today the opening of its newest clinics in Lancaster, Mesquite, and DeSoto, Texas.

Regional Dialysis Center of Lancaster, LLC, Regional Dialysis Center of Mesquite, LLC, and DeSoto Regional Dialysis Center, LLC, are located in the Dallas, Texas area. These three dialysis facilities are a joint venture between ARA and Dallas Nephrology Associates (“DNA”). These state-of-the-art facilities combined have been constructed to accommodate 82 in-center dialysis stations, with our Mesquite and DeSoto facilities housing spacious home dialysis units. Drs. Richard Fuquay and Enrique Cariño will serve as the facilities medical directors. Dialysis provides a life-saving therapy to patients suffering from kidney failure. These facilities will provide all forms of dialysis for our patients.

“We are thrilled to have opened these three beautiful facilities with our physician partners, DNA”, CEO Joe Carlucci said of the new units. “Together with our partners, our newest dialysis clinics will provide high-quality dialysis care to the residents of the Dallas area, and the surrounding counties. I’m proud of all that ARA has accomplished as we continue to expand our presence nationwide. These facilities are a welcome addition to the ARA family of dialysis clinics.”

Dr. Geoffrey Walker, senior physician with DNA, echoed Mr. Carlucci’s sentiments; “By partnering with ARA, we were able to bring high-quality outpatient dialysis facilities to the patients of Dallas, Texas and the surrounding counties. Our partnership with ARA also provides us with the opportunity to treat our patients in an exceptionally high-quality, cost-efficient manner, and allows us to retain much of the autonomy we need and value as physicians. The beneficiaries of this exciting partnership are the patients we treat.”
