Transaction enhances the company’s national footprint and service capability with the addition of an established SNF network and experience.

BROOKLYN, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dialyze Direct, the nation’s leading provider of home hemodialysis services in skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), announced today that Chicago-based RenPro Renal Services, which provides dialysis services to patients in SNFs in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky, has merged into the company under the Dialyze Direct name.

Complementary to Dialyze Direct’s own patient-centric business model, RenPro’s inception was the culmination of decades of experience in providing ancillary services in the long-term care space and a joint desire to provide an innovative care model and treatment experience to patients’ suffering from chronic and end-stage kidney disease. As part of the transaction, RenPro’s team of highly skilled senior leadership will be transitioning into new roles within Dialyze Direct.

“RenPro began with a mission of providing superior dialysis care delivered with integrity and compassion,” said Elly Latinik, RenPro’s Chief Executive Officer. “Merging into Dialyze Direct was an opportunity to work with a company that not only shares this vision but also through technology and innovation continues to improve the treatment model of care to provide patients an improved quality of life while residing in the skilled care facility. We are thrilled to partner with Dialyze Direct and to make this model available to as many dialysis patients as possible and for the opportunity to become part of a team that is changing the industry.”

The RenPro transaction is the most recent in a series of Dialyze Direct’s strategic acquisitions and partnerships to bring the company’s unique on-site dialysis model to patients across the nation. At the end of last year, Dialyze Direct acquired Renew Dialysis, a regional SNF dialysis provider in Ohio and Virginia. Earlier this year, the company completed its acquisition of Compass Home Dialysis, a regional dialysis provider in Pennsylvania with on-site dialysis services in nine SNFs, as well as an outpatient dialysis clinic.

“2022 has been a year of growth and expansion for Dialyze Direct. From the start our strategic plan has been to identify and partner with like-minded health providers that share our commitment to changing geriatric dialysis for the better, and RenPro fits that exactly,” said Dialyze Direct’s Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder Henry Kauftheil. “We are looking forward to welcoming them to Dialyze Direct and building an even better dialysis service offering to the patient population.”

Dialyze Direct continues to strengthen its positioning as the leading SNF dialysis provider in the United States, with on-site dialysis services in more than 150 SNFs in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.
