Renal Ventures Management Reopens Somerville Dialysis Clinic After Hurricane Irene Cleanup
SOMERVILLE, N.J. --(Business Wire)--
Renal Ventures Management LLC, a leading provider of dialysis
services for patients suffering from chronic kidney failure, announced
today that it has reopened its state-of-the-art outpatient dialysis
facility located in Somerville, N.J. The Renal Center of Somerville LLC,
which was damaged due to flooding from Hurricane Irene in August 2011,
officially began treating patients on March 30, 2012.
"With the help of a dedicated construction team and cooperation from
local government officials, the $1 million renovation was completed in
just six months for a project that would typically take nearly a year,"
said Karen Marcus, Divisional Director of Operations East.
"The re-opening of the Somerville clinic is a momentous occasion for our
community. The new clinic represents the pinnacle of renal care in a
warm and inviting environment; it is something we are truly proud of. We
look forward to welcoming back our patients," said Dr. Eric Manning,
Joint Venture Partner and Medical Director.
Renal Ventures Management said over 45 patients have resumed their
weekly dialysis treatments. That represents an increase from the number
of patients receiving treatment at te clinic prior to the storm. The
company credits the strong show of patient support to its qualified
staff and history of quality care.
"Undergoing dialysis is a life-long commitment for me to maintain my
health and well-being," said Joanne Servino, Renal Center of Somerville
LLC patient since 2009. "It can also be physically and emotionally
challenging. The people at the Somerville clinic have always eased the
burden of dialysis by taking the time to get to know me as a person and
not just treating me as another patient. I look forward to getting back
to the familiar and friendly faces."

New Jersey. The company has developed a reputation as a first choice
provider of dialysis services in the area as a result of its
