The new center, seated at a busy intersection on Louisiana Avenue, which is currently undergoing extensive drainage work, will employ about 10 people and offer a range of services, including in-center dialysis, peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysisDialysis removes excess water, solutes and toxins from the blood in patients who have kidney injury or disease.
