Through a partnership with Johns Hopkins Hospital, Fresenius Kidney Care, one of the nation’s largest dialysis treatment providers, will expand its network of dialysis centers with eight new locations in the Baltimore area.

Under the agreement a new dialysis center designed specially to treat children with chronic kidney disease will be based at Hopkins’ flagship hospital. Other dialysis centers, all to be overseen by Hopkins doctors, will be located in Baltimore, Dundalk and Lutherville-Timonium.

“Chronic kidney disease is a considerable, but unrecognized health issue in this country,” said Dr. Paul Scheel, division chief of the nephrology department at Johns Hopkins Hospital, in a statement. “We are pleased to be a part of this initiative, dedicated to providing optimal dialysis services to our patients.”
