In partnership with DaVita Inc.—a leading provider of kidney care in the US—Trover Health Systems will be introducing a new, state-of-the-art dialysis center to our community in 2011. As Trover President and CEO, E. Berton Whitaker, stated at the groundbreaking, members of both Trover and DaVita are hopeful that the 7, 250 square foot structure will be completed by next July at the corner of North St. and Kentucky Ave.

In addition to his speech at the groundbreaking, during which he thanked the staff at Trover and DaVita, President Whitaker also stated that, “Dialysis patients spend a lot of time receiving treatment, often coming three times a week, so it is important that they receive care in a trusting and comfortable environment. The new DaVita Dialysis Center will be home to the same highly trained professionals, while offering superior clinical outcomes in a warm and friendly location.”

The new dialysis center will also offer 21 dialysis chairs, an open floor plan (which will utilize plenty of natural light), and an easy-to-use “drop-off area” that will allow patients easier access to the center. The new structure will also come equipped with flat screen TVs and wireless internet for patients and family members alike.

With shovels in hand and hardhats on their heads, members of the Trover medical staff, President Whitaker and his wife—Chamber of Commerce President, Harriett Whitaker—and with help from others, the construction was made official as the first few shovel loads of loose soil were scooped away to a round of applause.
