BIRMINGHAM, Ala., June 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- DSI Renal, a leading provider of dialysis services for patients suffering from chronic kidney failure, today announced the opening of a newly relocated Birmingham dialysis clinic, DSI South Dialysis. The new facility, conveniently located near several hospital and health care systems on the Southside of the downtown Birmingham area, replaces the former DSI Norwood clinic. DSI South Dialysis will host an Open House event on Tuesday, June 5, from 4 pm to 6 pm CT for patients, physicians and other visitors interested in seeing the new state-of-the-art facility.
"We are extremely pleased to open the doors of this impressive new location, which offers a number of substantial updates for existing and prospective patients," said Birmingham native Jason Gunter, who is Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer at DSI Renal. "While we will continue to offer the same level of exceptional medical care, the new facility is indisputably more inviting, convenient and accessible than our prior location."
The new DSI South clinic, located at 3201 3rd Avenue South, is situated in the highly visible and established medical district across from Baptist Health System and near St. Vincent's, UAB and Brookwood medical centers. Patient amenities include heated massage chairs, individual station flat-screen TVs, flexible scheduling and plenty of free, private parking.
