Private suites offered for dialysis treatment

Dialysis patients now have an opportunity to receive treatment in private suites. Avantus Renal Therapy says Connecticut is the first state to offer them.

Avantus opened the kidney dialysis suites as a partner with Saint Raphael Healthcare System at its dialysis clinic at 137 Water St.Link
According to Avantus’ press release, private suites “create a warm, homelike, family-friendly environment. Each suite features comfortable guest seating, large-screen TV, books, Internet access, DVDs and games.” The clinic is open 24 hours a day.

“Avantus Renal Therapy is raising the bar in terms of standards of care for dialysis patients, and our New Haven dialysis center will serve as a regional and national example, demonstrating the importance of combining a high standard of quality benefits with an environment that is truly geared to meet the physical and emotional needs of patients,” said Dr. Paul Zabetakis, president of the associated Renal Research Institute, in the release.
