Reliant Renal Care Opens Home Choice Dialysis Center in York Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Cheltenham, PA

MEDIA, Pa., June 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reliant Renal Care (RRC) is on a mission to provide dialysis patients a choice for their dialysis treatments. Residents of York Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on dialysis will no longer face the many hardships and health risks often associated with traveling to outside facilities for dialysis treatments. Reliant Renal Care's new Cheltenham Home Choice Center is located on the first floor of the nursing and rehabilitation center and has ten dialysis stations in a relaxed Home environment. Additionally, there is a Home Hemodialysis and Peritoneal (CCPD/CAPD) Training room to teach patients how to dialyze themselves in the comfort of their own home, using advanced portable dialysis technology. RRC's Home Training and In-Center Dialysis treatments are open to both residents of the facility and the local communities who require dialysis. RRC held a Professional Open House Thursday, June 12th and will hold the Community Open House Saturday, June 14th.

Reliant Renal Care is a company on a mission to provide dialysis patients a choice of treatments for dialysis. Reliant operates centers in 6 states and provides conventional hemodialysis in-center, acute care, home HHD and PD training, and has recently expanded services to include staff assisted home hemodialysis within skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities. Reliant Renal Care is the Right Choice for high quality, compassionate Dialysis services.

RRC's CEO Barbara Bednar sees Reliant as a company with a vision: "We're committed to providing dialysis patients a 'Choice' in their care, and Home Choice provides the highest quality of care in the most compassionate way." On-site dialysis services are performed by a skilled interdisciplinary team and led by RCC's Medical Director, Daranee Chewaproug, MD, which will tremendously benefit York residents who suffer from kidney failure.

For the right patient, Home Dialysis (Hemo or CCPD/CAPD) is a significantly better therapy. RRC's Home Choice Training provides education and support for those individuals who want to take control of their dialysis needs. Home dialysis is a more frequent regiment, rather than the limited, three treatments per week, in-center schedule. Many studies have shown more frequent dialysis treatments offer patients better clinical outcomes and an increase in their quality of life. Patients dialyze on their own schedule, regaining time and freedom in their day that is not allowable by the in-center schedule.

About Reliant Renal Care: Reliant Renal Care was founded by Certified Nephrology Nurse, Barbara Bednar, in 2007 and operates in six states. Home Training focused Dialysis Centers will be opening in Bessemer, Alabama; Kenner, Louisiana; and Lapeer Michigan. To learn more about our expansion into the Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Centers, Home Dialysis Training or to see RRC's newest facilities, visit www.reliantrenalcare.com, call Natalie Fitzgerald at 610-744-2019.
