I'm a new member and wanted to say hello.
I also wanted to know if any one knows anything about this new and quite invasive species of dialysis corporations, Libertarius dialysisium,
AKA Liberty Dialysis.
All I know is that it is a very new company, and that they have bought out all 3 dialysis units on the Big Island in the last 18 months. They are still in the final phase of taking over my unit, North Hawaii, which has been hospital owned and operated.
I have mixed feelings...On one hand, it seems like these companies (eg fresenius, davita, etc.) make their profit by short-changing the staff and patients. On the other hand, patients and staff should have better support and resources for dialysis-specific problems/needs.
The real bummer is that if it turns out to be a really crappy employer, my options (and my co-workers') will be to change careers or leave the island!
Anyone know this company or had similar experiences? I read the thread about fresenius, and i'm thankful that Liberty has opted to allow us to keep our previous benefits (or so they say...)
