Located at 4711 Neely Road, the state-of-the-art dialysis center offers 12 in-center hemodialysis stations and an isolation room, with future plans to provide home dialysis training and support program.

An open house for physicians, patients, families and neighbors is scheduled from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 27.
