Walla Walla dialysis facility wins recognition from operator


WALLA WALLA -- Fresenius Medical Care North America, operator of a network of dialysis facilities, has designated six of its Washington state facilities -- including one in Walla Walla -- as "Centers of Excellence " for achieving the highest standards in patient care in 2009.

Each year, to encourage continuous quality improvement, the company recognizes its facilities that are noteworthy in their high achievement of clinical quality outcomes. The annual designations are based on how the facilities perform on multiple objective measures of dialysis clinical quality, such as dialysis adequacy, control of anemia, nutritional status, vascular access, patient satisfaction and transplant education.

Walla Walla's Fresenius Medical Care operates as QualiCenters at Providence St. Mary Medical Center and is a recipient of this year's award.
