Corporation Honors its Pikesville Dialysis Facility
A dialysis care facility in Pikesville earned a patient care award from its corporate headquarters.
Fresenius Medical Care Porter Dialysis, located at 115 McHenry Ave., received a Center of Excellence award.
"Our Center of Exellence award distinguishes the facilities that achieve the best clinical results through the dedication and hard work of the staff," Carolyn Latham, vice president of clinical quality and UltraCare at Fresenius Medical Care said in a statement.
Dialysis cleans waste products from the blood, according to a news release from the facility. "It also removes extra fluids and controls the body's chemistry when a person's kidneys fail," the release states.
All Fresenius facilities keep high standards of care as published by the Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative of the National Kidney Foundation.
Fresenius has 3,119 clinics in North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia-Pacific and Africa.
