WAIPAHU, Hawaii, April 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSI Renal, a leading provider of dialysis services for patients suffering from chronic kidney failure, announced today that it has opened the doors of the new DSI Waipahu Dialysis center in downtown Waipahu. The 24-station facility was blessed and began treating patients last week, and will host an Open House event on April 7 for area patients, physicians and the community.
"We are so pleased to offer this exceptional new clinic for dialysis patients in Waipahu, many of whom will benefit from reduced transit time due to the convenient location," said Aaron Nada, M.D., Medical Director at DSI Waipahu Dialysis. "The facility's capacity adequately addresses a need for dialysis services in the Waipahu area, and will also better leverage the ability of DSI clinics in surrounding areas to meet demand in their local communities."
DSI acquired the Waipahu facility from Fresenius in June 2012 while it was still under construction, pursuant to a Federal Trade Commission order to preserve competition in Hawaii's dialysis system. In March 2013, DSI completed construction of the new clinic, which features 24 in-center hemodialysis stations, a home peritoneal dialysis training/support program, and patient amenities including individual station flat-screen TVs and plenty of free, private parking. Located at 94-862 Kahuailani Street, the clinic is situated in the heart of downtown Waipahu behind the former Arakawa building, just one block from Filcom Center and Waipahu Depot Road.
"It's extremely gratifying to share this impressive facility with a community of patients who will truly benefit from having a convenient new choice," said Craig Goguen, President and Chief Executive Officer at DSI Renal. "We look forward to working with Dr. Nada and his team to care for and improve the lives of these patients."
DSI Waipahu Dialysis will host an Open House on Sunday, April 7, 2013, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm to allow patients, the medical community and other interested visitors to tour the new clinic. The event is open to the public, and pupus and refreshments will be served.
