One in seven American adults now has kidney disease, up 30 percent in the past decade.
The nonprofit Northwest Kidney Centers provides 80 percent of the dialysis care in King and Clallam counties, educates the public about kidney health, and collaborates with UW Medicine in the Kidney Research Institute. Northwest Kidney Centers’ staff of 550 delivers more than 200,000 treatments a year in 14 dialysis centers and 11 hospitals. It also maintains one of the country’s largest training and support programs for people who wish to give themselves dialysis at home.
Since 1962, Northwest Kidney Centers has sustained lives and inspired hope. Its mission — to promote health, independence, and quality of life for people with kidney disease — remains vital today.
Strategic Plan: 2010-2015
Northwest Kidney Centers' strategic plan guides the organization. We will address challenges while improving quality and service and maintaining our financial health — in adherence to our mission, vision, and values.
