RGH Opens New Dialysis Center

Rochester General Health System (RGHS), in partnership with DaVita Healthcare Partners, Inc., is meeting the region’s ever growing demand for outpatient dialysis with the opening of the Newark-Wayne Dialysis Center in Newark. The Dialysis Center is now accepting patients. The Center, that houses 14 new dialysis stations, is equipped with heated chairs, personal televisions and WiFi, and brings the total number of outpatient dialysis stations operated by RGHS to 83.

The public and the media are invited to a ribbon-cutting on Wednesday, October 23rd at 11 a.m. Tours will be available following the ceremony.

“RGHS has been a leader in providing outpatient dialysis in the Rochester Region,” said Marvin Grieff, MD, Medical Director at the Newark-Wayne Dialysis Center. “For each of our centers, delivering superior patient care close to where our patients live has been a top priority. We chose to partner with DaVita for the Newark center due to their proven record in partnering with other hospitals to provide excellent care for dialysis patients throughout the U.S., especially in the more rural setting.”

Services provided at the new Newark-Wayne Dialysis Center will include in-center hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. All services are provided by board-certified nephrologists and a highly skill team.

The Newark-Wayne Dialysis Center, that is conveniently located at 1120 South Main Street in Newark, is one of three centers operated by Rochester General Health System. RGHS’s other two sites are located in Webster and Irondequoit.
