Press Release – 3/26/2013—

PERTH AMBOY — DaVita®, a division of DaVita HealthCare Partners, Inc. (NYSE: DVA) and a leading provider of kidney care services today announced that U.S. Representative Frank Pallone (NJ-06) visited the Perth Amboy Dialysis Center last week to meet patients and care givers and learn about dialysis; in particular, the kidney care needs of local constituents.

“With millions of Americans suffering from kidney failure, the service DaVita provides is critical to so many lives,” said Congressman Pallone. “Visiting the Perth Amboy DaVita Dialysis Center was a great opportunity to learn more about kidney health, and also to discuss how the policies made in Congress affect the center’s ability to serve its patients.”

More than 20 million people over the age of 20 in the U.S. have kidney disease, most of whom are unaware they are affected by the disease. High risk groups include African Americans, Hispanics, Pacific Islanders, Native Americans and seniors (those 60 and over). Primary risk factors include diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease or a family history of these conditions.

The Perth Amboy DaVita Dialysis Center serves Middlesex County. For more information, please call 732-324-2406 or visit them at 530 New Brunswick Ave., Perth Amboy, NJ 08861.
