Dialysis Management that Makes a Difference
Greenfield Health Systems opened a new home dialysis training facility in late January for patients with kidney failure.
The new state-of-the-art facility, Western Regional Home Dialysis, is located in the Medical Arts Building, 39525 W. 14 Mile Rd. in Novi.
Other than a kidney transplant, dialysis is the only treatment option available for patients with kidney failure. Many patients often prefer to have dialysis at home because of its improved physical and emotional outcomes.
“Patients on home dialysis treatments typically report feeling healthier, more energetic and happier than patients who receive care at a dialysis center,”
says Hassan Fehmi, M.D., medical director of Western Regional Home Dialysis.
“Opening this training facility makes it possible for even more patients to receive dialysis from the comfort of their home.”
Greenfield Health Systems, a division of Henry Ford Health System, owns and operates the new facility, the company’s second home-only dialysis training facility in metro Detroit.
