NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSI Renal, a leading provider of dialysis services for patients suffering from chronic kidney failure, today announced the milestone opening of their 100th dialysis clinic located in Travelers Rest, South Carolina.
"We are excited about opening our 100th clinic and for the effort that it represents. It is tangible evidence of what we have accomplished to date," said Craig Goguen, President and CEO of DSI Renal. "This is an important milestone for our company and physician partners. It further recognizes the dedication of an entire team and the trust that our physician partners have put in us to achieve such great success in a short time."
Since its formation with 30 clinics in late 2011, DSI's expansion across the United States has gained momentum. With current locations in 22 states, DSI has focused on building density in existing markets and on entering new markets with strong physician partners. "This time last year we had 90 locations, today we are at 100 locations, and we plan to exceed 110 by year end," said Goguen. "We are planning to add 15-20 clinics per year, and that doesn't include any acquisition opportunities that present themselves."
The company's future plans involve moving into new markets, as well as expanding in existing markets. The Travelers Rest dialysis clinic is the 7th DSI location in South Carolina as part of its market commitment and cluster growth strategy.
"Our growth is about the convenience for our patients to have access to this life-sustaining care right in their community," said Jason Gunter, Chief Operating Officer of DSI Renal. "The need for the vital treatment we provide is evolving rapidly; we can no longer expect patients to travel to find the care they need, we need to be where the patients are."
