DaVita Opens its Doors to all Dialysis Patients in New Orleans
NEW ORLEANS --(Business Wire)--
Recognizing that South Louisiana is being ravaged by Hurricane Isaac and
that emergency rooms are filling up with patients impacted by the storm,
DaVita is seeking to ease that burden by encouraging any dialysis
patient in need of treatment - regardless of their typical provider - to
contact DaVita's Guest Services Contact Center at 800-400-8331.
DaVita's Guest Services Contact Center will work with patients to
identify the closest clinic to them, get them scheduled for a treatment
that fits their needs, and work with the patient's physician or
traditional caregiver(s) to coordinate the treatment process.
For more information, please call 800-400-8331 or go to www.davita.com/services/travel-support.
