Northwest Kidney Centers to open new Panther Lake dialysis clinic

Northwest Kidney Centers, a nonprofit outpatient dialysis provider with clinics in King, Pierce, Snohomish and Clallam counties, this month will open its newest clinic in the Panther Lake area of Kent and will host an open house on Thursday March 30.

The open house will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. at the new 9,473-square-foot clinic at 10821 SE 204 Street, Kent. The clinic will have 11 dialysis stations and be able to accommodate approximately 66 patients three times a week for lifesaving blood-cleansing treatments that take about four hours each time. It will also include dedicated training space for home dialysis patients, and offer free community health classes to help people at any stage of kidney disease optimize their health, quality of life and independence.

“We are excited to offer this new state-of-the-art clinic to our patients in the Panther Lake community and to extend our high-quality dialysis care to south King County, where there is real need,” said Rebecca Fox, president and chief executive officer of Northwest Kidney Centers. “As a preferred dialysis provider, we look forward to offering the community additional access to life-sustaining dialysis treatments and the full suite of services to improve the lives of those impacted by kidney disease.”

The clinic and support space was designed by Mahlum Architects and includes room for future expansion. Aldrich + Associates was the general contractor.
