It was announced on Tuesday that DaVita Dialysis has leased a good portion of the old Walmart building and currently in the process of remodeling and refitting that portion of the building for their use.
DaVita currently is housed in a portion of the Family Physicians Clinic.
DaVita Inc. provides kidney dialysis services through a network of 2,753 outpatient dialysis centers in the United States, serving 206,900 patients, and 259 outpatient dialysis centers in 10 other countries serving 28,700 patients. The company primarily treats end-stage renal disease (ESRD), which requires patients to undergo dialysis 3 times per week for the rest of their lives.
BIDCorp Executive Director Brian Brisendine stated, “DaVita operates more than 2,500 clinics nationwide, so they have a proven track record of success. They have seen their Brownfield location grow in the last few years and we are glad they are committed to providing life saving services to local residents and citizens around the South Plains who come here for their dialysis needs.”
The current plan is to be in the new location and open sometime in 2021.
