Aurora, CO – Aviva at Fitzsimons and Davita® Post Acute Services are proud to announce a partnership to offer patients the convenience of on-site dialysis kidney care.
The in-house hemodialysis services are exclusive to patients at Aviva at Fitzsimons, a post acute rehabilitation community. Specially trained and dedicated DaVita nurses provide these services with the support of experienced medical directors and oversight from Colorado Kidney Care physicians. Patients will receive the same high-quality therapy as they would in outpatient centers three times per week in a comfortable and convenient setting.
This collaboration eliminates the challenges that transportation to treatment facilities creates and prioritizes patient care. In-house treatment in the Dialysis Den allows Aviva at Fitzsimons patients to remain in their rehabilitation center to receive dialysis, reducing the risk of the spread of infections including COVID-19. This program is also projected to reduce the total cost of care to health insurance payers as well as reduce hospital readmissions.
