American Renal Associates is a national provider of dialysis services, focused exclusively on joint venture relationships with nephrologists. Together with our physician partners, we provide exceptional care and services to over 7,000 patients who choose to receive treatment in one of the 102 state-of-the art facilities located in nineteen states and the District of Columbia. ARA believes that the dialysis clinic is, in many ways, a natural extension of the nephrology practice. With ARA, the nephrologist as an owner, has complete autonomy in treating his or her patient. We will never get between the physician and treatment decisions. The physician is empowered to ensure high quality care for his or her patients who choose to receive dialysis at their facility. ARA’s 10+ years of experience in partnering with nephrologists has resulted in significantly lower staff turnover, excellent patient and staff satisfaction, rapid disciplined growth and among the best clinical outcomes in the industry.
