BARBERTON/NORTON — Dialysis patients in Barberton and its surrounding communities will now have improved access to care thanks to a new 13-station U.S. Renal Care dialysis facility located at 33 Third Street S.E.

The facility is pictured at right.

Barberton Mayor Bill Judge, Chamber of Commerce Director Joe Fazek, local officials, area hospital leaders, health care advocates, patients and physicians gathered recently to mark the opening of the facility.

“We strive to be very patient-focused, both in terms of need and ensuring that our patients have access to the highest-quality dialysis care,” said Dr. Datinder Deo, a nephrologist who will serve as the facility’s medical director. “This new U.S. Renal Care facility will give local patients expanded access to care closer to home while also offering a choice in providers. It will also help bring peace of mind to patients and their families by providing them with a healing environment and a care team that puts patient needs above all else.”

Patients will have access to dieticians, social workers and nurses providing patients and their families with support and resources. The new center comes equipped with massage chairs and personal TVs at each station, and the décor features calming wall colors and a fireplace, according to company officials.

In addition to in-center dialysis treatment, a U.S. Renal Care Home Therapies program soon will open shortly at 3300 Greenwich Road in Norton. The program provides education and training for patients who choose to dialyze in their homes. Deo also will serve as the medical director for that program.

These facilities are U.S. Renal Care’s first in Northeast Ohio, with seven others in the state.
