The owners of Elite Health Center are excited to announce that DaVita Dialysis Center will be moving from their current location to the new multi-tenant
health and wellness complex currently under construction on the southeast corner of Highway 71 and 42 Street in Scottsbluff.
DaVita Kidney Care’s move comes as the company looks for a larger space to allow for an enhanced care environment for patients and staff and to expand
their dialysis stations. The center currently operates in a smaller, multi-level clinic, while the new location will increase their space to 8,000
square feet on one level and offers a covered drop off with an abundance of parking. The new location has 20 stations for dialysis, four more than
the previous location could accommodate.
In addition to DaVita Kidney Care, Elite Health Center will house other medical specialties, a cafe, indoor atrium and outdoor courtyard with seating,
daycare and fitness facility. The new center broke ground on construction in December, and are hoping to have their doors open by spring 2017.
"We are extremely excited to have DaVita Kidney Care as part of the Elite Health Center facility," said Katie Camacho, operations manager for Elite
Health Center. "They fit perfectly into our vision for providing quality office space for those committed to the health and wellness of our community."
According to April Conn, facility administrator at the Scottsbluff DaVita Dialysis location, the center currently serves more than 70 dialysis patients.
"Unfortunately, as end stage renal disease continues to increase, the need for dialysis is growing," said Conn."Over the last 10 years our patient
load has doubled." Aside from offering peritoneal dialysis, DaVita Kidney Care also provides resources on kidney disease and informative classes
open to the public at no cost.
"The new center will be more like a home environment to make people comfortable," Conn added.
DaVita Kidney Care centers treat patients with chronic kidney failure and end stage renal disease. The Scottsbluff DaVita dialysis center received
a five-star rating by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Once the new health center is completed, the company envisions no interruption of services during the move to their new facilities.
