Partnership Model

Partnering with leading national physicians is at our core.


We are exclusively focused on operating dialysis clinics in partnership with local nephrologists, and, as a result, we have gained a strong reputation in the industry.

When you partner with ARA, you are partnering with a company that is dedicated to supporting your needs and growing with you. We work hard for all of our physician partners to help every clinic deliver quality care to patients.

Here’s what you get from partnering with us.


As the local owner of your dialysis facility, you have full clinical autonomy and the freedom to choose the staff, supplies and equipment as you see fit. We assist you by providing clinical and administrative support, which gives you the ability to control clinical oversight at your facility and be in charge of your own patients’ care.

Equity Partnership

You have a direct say in the business operation of your dialysis facility and share in its financial performance. Our model fosters a fair and balanced partnership that is built to last.


We have an experienced team with expertise in facility development, operations management and clinical support. We know what you need and provide you with the best services. This includes providing assistance with clinical and technical services, supplies and purchasing, revenue cycle management, payroll, accounting, information systems, cost reporting and marketing.

Quality Patient Care and Comfort

We put quality patient care first to deliver the best dialysis treatment possible. We work with you to create an environment that supports high quality patient care and patient comfort.

Regulatory Compliance

ARA adheres to stringent billing, reimbursement and compliance procedures, and we believe our performance is driven by a culture of compliance and the advantages of our physician partnership model.

Strong Track Record

Since opening our first centers in 2000, we have grown quickly and established a reputation for clinical, operational and financial excellence.


ARA is committed to enhancing and deepening the trust in our relationship with you and your patients.
