Our physicians play a critical role in the care provided at our dialysis centers. They are also our partners. U.S. Renal Care operates its local facilities through joint ventures with physicians who also serve as the Center's Medical Directors.
Joint venture partnerships are beneficial for physicians, patients and U.S. Renal Care because they:
- Enable physicians to provide input into business decisions that affect patient care and the resources available for treatment.
- Provide a balance between business and clinical expertise at the management level.
- Empower physicians to lead facilities in the established communities in which they provide medical services.
- Retain the local, communal presence while adhering to the high standards established by U.S. Renal Care.
