Patients from the Streamwood area in need of dialysis treatment now have access to care close to home, thanks to a new 13-station U.S. Renal Care facility at 149 Irving Park Road.
Village officials, area hospital leaders, patients and physicians gathered today to mark the opening of the state-of-the-art facility, which is the first dialysis center in Streamwood.
In addition to location, patients will have access to a team of professionals including dieticians, social workers and nurses who will provide patients and their families with the support and resources they need to stay on a healthy path during treatment. The new center also comes equipped with massage chairs and individual DVD players at each station.
The facility is U.S. Renal Care’s first dialysis center in Illinois, with two more scheduled to open this fall – one at 396 Remington Blvd., Bolingbrook, and one at 1201-B Butterfield Road in the Oak Brook/Downers Grove area.
