Dialysis Management that Makes a Difference
Greenfield Health Systems opened a new home dialysis training facility in late January for patients with kidney failure.
The new state-of-the-art facility, Western Regional Home Dialysis, is located in the Medical Arts Building, 39525 W. 14 Mile Rd. in Novi.
Other than a kidney transplant, dialysis is the only treatment option available for patients with kidney failure. Many patients often prefer to have dialysis at home because of its improved physical and emotional outcomes.
“Patients on home dialysis treatments typically report feeling healthier, more energetic and happier than patients who receive care at a dialysis center,”
says Hassan Fehmi, M.D., medical director of Western Regional Home Dialysis.
“Opening this training facility makes it possible for even more patients to receive dialysis from the comfort of their home.”
Greenfield Health Systems, a division of Henry Ford Health System, owns and operates the new facility, the company’s second home-only dialysis training facility in metro Detroit.

We will also have just celebrated our 30 year anniversary, so please be on the lookout for pictures from over the years! - Erica Enix
Vivian Sanders isn’t your typical dialysis patient. Her outward appearance sets her apart from the crowd (she’s young and looks healthy), but it’s her vibrant personality and endless ambition that really make you say “wow.”
Renal Care Symposium 2012
Once again, this year’s Renal Care Symposium was a hit! Declared by many as “the best one yet,” The Renal Care Symposium 2012 was held November 7 and 8 at the beautiful Inn at St. John’s. This year’s theme was Path to Performance. The speakers were Dr. Fredrick Finkelstein, Stan Frinak (MSEE), Beth Fry (BS, RD, LD), Dr. Laura Johnson, Dr. Thomas Palmer and Cher Thomas (RDH). Topics included Peritoneal Dialysis, Infection Prevention, Phosphorous Management, Patient Participation, Pain Management and Innovative Regional Citrate Anticoagulation for Dialysis. While there were thousands (literally) of pictures taken throughout the two days, here are some of this year’s highlights.”: Kim Roman (pics)
