Three new outpatient dialysis clinics — one in Fife, two in Federal Way — are on the way from Northwest Kidney Centers.

“One of our strategic plan goals is to grow bigger, and we’ll do that in areas where kidney failure is on the rise and the demand for dialysis services continues to increase — which is the case in the south Puget Sound region,” said Joyce F. Jackson, president and CEO of Northwest Kidney Centers, in a news release announcing the new centers.

The new sites and opening dates, according to the release:

▪ 6021 12th St. E., Suite 100, Fife, is scheduled to open this fall and will be Northwest Kidney Centers’ first outpatient clinic in Pierce County. The clinic will be able to provide more than 9,000 dialysis treatments each year.

▪ 33820 Weyerhaeuser Way S., Suite 100, Federal Way, is scheduled to open in mid-March. This site will be able to provide more than 13,000 dialysis treatments a year. It also features a community classroom and a three-room suite for training people to give themselves dialysis at home. Free community classes will cover nutrition and how to select the right treatment for kidney failure.

▪ 501 S. 336th Street, Suite 110, Federal Way, in the Fountain Plaza II building, is scheduled to open this summer. It will be able to provide 6,500 dialysis treatments per year and will have space for training home dialysis patients.

Northwest Kidney Centers is the nation’s eighth largest dialysis provider.
