American Renal Associates (ARA) and Western Nephrology Announce the Grand Opening of Kidney Center of the Rockies in the Vail Valley.

July 17, 2017.

The only dialysis facility in the Colorado Mountains along the I-70 corridor between Denver, CO and Grand Junction, CO.

Avon, CO and Wheat Ridge, CO – American Renal Associates, a leading national provider of outpatient dialysis services, and Western Nephrology, one of the largest nephrology groups in Colorado, today announced the Grand Opening of Kidney Center of the Rockies in Avon, Colorado.  

The new dialysis center is a partnership between American Renal Associates and Western Nephrology, located at the Buck Creek Medical Plaza in Avon, Colorado. Dialysis patients who choose the Kidney Center of the Rockies will have multiple treatment options, including in-center hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis (PD) and home hemodialysis. Call 970-949-3236 to make an appointment.

 “Prior to the opening of Kidney Center of the Rockies, there was no option for patients needing dialysis anywhere in the mountains…If one developed kidney failure while living in the area, it became necessary to drive to Denver or Grand Junction multiple times a week to obtain dialysis. This frequent and long commute became onerous; it becomes almost impossible to live in a location where there aren’t dialysis services available.” Dr. Michael Anger, Medical Director

American Renal Associates is also introducing their Dialysis at Ski™ program designed to help traveling dialysis patients and their families plan vacations in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Patients will have the ability to receive their dialysis treatments in a state-of-the-art facility that is close, convenient, and operated by a highly-trained clinical staff.

“Many people would say, ‘I’d love to spend a month in the Rockies in the summer, but I can’t because there is nowhere I can go for dialysis.’ Now patients can plan ski and summer vacations to the area” Dr. Michael Anger, Medical Director

To celebrate the Grand Opening, Kidney Center of the Rockies is holding an Open House on July 24, 2017 from 4:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. at 50 Buck Creek Road, Avon, Colorado 801620. Medical professionals, patients, caregivers, and interested members of the public are welcome.
