MEDIA, Pa., Oct. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reliant Renal Care, Inc. (RRC) announces the opening of the RRC-Bessemer Home ChoiceTM Training Center at 650 9th Avenue, Suite 104 Bessemer, AL. After passing all regulatory requirements without any deficiencies, our state-of- the- art, all-inclusive home dialysis training center is now admitting patients. The Center focuses on the unique needs of patients who choose to perform their dialysis treatments in the comfort of their home. The open-access facility offers peritoneal and hemodialysis training programs, and home hemodialysis patients have the added convenience of respite treatments.
Barbara Bednar, Chief Executive Officer at RRC commented on the opening of Bessemer program, saying "We are extremely pleased to have partnered with Dr. Geoffrey Alilonu and Dr. Michael Robards to open this freestanding home training program in the community of Bessemer. The home training center focuses on the needs of end-stage renal disease patients who choose home dialysis treatment options. Both Drs. Alilonu and Robards are advocates of home dialysis as demonstrated in the RRC Northridge Dialysis Center in Northport, AL where 42% of the dialysis patient population selected home dialysis" commented."
For the right patient, Home Dialysis (CCPD/CAPD or Hemo) is a significantly better therapy and more appropriately meets certain life style needs. RRC's Home ChoiceTM Training provides education and support for those individuals who want to take control of their dialysis treatments. Home dialysis is a more frequent regimen, 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
