Dr. Ben Carson, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Visited the Sanderling Dialysis Clinic of Nashville
Dr. Ben Carson, Secretary of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development visited the Sanderling Dialysis Clinic of Nashville where he met with patients and staff. He saw first-hand, the results of Sanderling’s public-private partnership with the Metropolitan Development Housing Agency.
The Sanderling-MDHA partnership has focused on training people to become Certified Clinical Hemodialysis Technicians (CCHT’s) who can then provide in-home hemodialysis to patients who don’t have a family member to assist with home dialysis. This unique program has succeeded in allowing more than 60% of Sanderling’s patients in Nashville to receive hemodialysis at home, compared with the US national average of less than 3% receiving home hemodialysis.
