About American Renal Associates
American Renal Associates is a national provider of dialysis services, focused exclusively on joint venture relationships with nephrologists. Together with our physician partners, we provide exceptional care and services to over 8,000 patients who choose to receive treatment in one of the 121 state-of-the art facilities located in nineteen states and the District of Columbia. ARA believes that the dialysis clinic is, in many ways, a natural extension of the nephrology practice. With ARA, the nephrologist as an owner, has complete autonomy in treating his or her patient. We will never get between the physician and treatment decisions. The physician is empowered to ensure high quality care for his or her patients who choose to receive dialysis at their facility. ARA’s 10+ years of experience in partnering with nephrologists has resulted in significantly lower staff turnover, excellent patient and staff satisfaction, rapid disciplined growth and among the best clinical outcomes in the industry.
The founding operating philosophy of ARA has
always been that the physicians and staff who treat the patients make
ARA into the excellent company we strive to be. The following principles
support this belief and drive the operations of ARA:
- Take good care of the patients and the financial
success will follow.
- Enable the nephrologist to practice as he/she sees appropriate.
- Provide the nephrologist the autonomy to make operational
- Acknowledge that facility staff members are a critical and
valuable asset. Do everything possible to hire and retain the best possible
- Listen to the practitioners and provide the tools needed
to take excellent care of their patients.
- The Corporate office works for our staff, our doctors and our patients.
