About Carolina Kidney Care
In 1977, Carolina Kidney Care, P.A. (CKC) was initiated in Fayetteville, when its first dialysis clinic was opened. This was the first dialysis outpatient clinic in North Carolina designed specifically to provide dialysis services. We opened that first clinic with only three patients, served by two nephrologists. Since that time, we have developed multiple dialysis clinics in conjunction with corporate dialysis providers. We have twelve nephrologists, with the help of eight physician specialty extenders, serving nearly one thousand end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients.
We work primarily with Fresenius Medical care (FMC) not only to provide services, but also to provide care to patients at area DaVita clinics and the Hoke Correctional Institution. We, in conjunction with FMC, Cape Fear Valley Health System and Southeastern Regional Health, have developed acute (hospital) dialysis units in Fayetteville (two units) and Lumberton. We provide home dialysis training in hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis at several area locations. Nocturnal outpatient hemodialysis is also provided at a Fayetteville area dialysis center.
We have full service nephrology offices in Fayetteville and Lumberton with a nephrology procedure center attached to our office in Fayetteville. This access center was the first such facility built in North Carolina. We have also developed satellite nephrology offices in numerous locations throughout Southeastern NC.
