Ozarks Dialysis named center of excellence

Ozarks Dialysis of CoxHealth was recently recognized as a STAR center of excellence by Baxter Healthcare, a global medical products and services company that provides supplies to Ozarks Dialysis.

In the spring of 2007, Baxter launched its Pursuit of Excellence program that set performance benchmarks in several categories, including nurse to patient ratios, ongoing education and outstanding clinical care. Peritoneal dialysis facilities that achieved or exceeded the benchmarks over a six-month period were recognized with special awards from Baxter.

Ozarks Dialysis was one of the first five clinics nationwide to receive the award out of more than 110 clinics participating. In addition to receiving a plaque in honor of the recognition, the Ozarks Dialysis STAR center achievement is published in this month's Nephrology News and Issues, a widely read trade publication.

Peritoneal dialysis allows people with kidney failure to do treatments at home, giving them more freedom and control of their situation. Ozarks Dialysis has provided home dialysis services since the mid-1970s and currently Ozarks Dialysis has more 50 people doing home dialysis. The peritoneal dialysis nurses at Ozarks Dialysis have more 40 years combined experience working in dialysis and are available 24 hours a day.
