Reviews/Thoughts?

Hi,

For those of who've had a lot of experience in dialysis with different companies, which would you say has been your favorite company and why? 

rhyde, LPN

Specializes in Nephrology/Dialysis.

I have worked for 2 non-profit stand alone clinics and then Fresenius and now DCI.  I have also travelled and worked with Fresenius as well.  I have not worked for Davita at all.

I do really like DCI the best.  The company's founder is still around, but his son really does much of the day to day running of the company.  I like that I can walk up to Dr. Doug Johnson (VP of the board) at the annual meeting and talk to him about experiences in my unit.  I like that they don't expect you to count every bandaid and test strip in the building.  I really like the fact that they are truly patient centered and that "the care of the patient is our reason for existence".  We have had calls every week with Doug and his team to help and guide us through this Covid-19 mess.  I feel like the company actually listens to the people who are on the front lines. 

Don't get me wrong, life is not all roses here either.  We still have to follow the same CMS guidelines and reimbursement isn't any better for us than the other clincs I don't think.  But I like the philosophy of the company and respect the founders.
