Saber Health and DaVita Post-Acute Services Deliver On-Site Dialysis

Feb. 18th, 2021

Life-sustaining kidney care available to Statesman Health and Rehabilitation Center residents

Levittown and Denver – Saber Health and DaVita Post-Acute Services are proud to bring an on-site, kidney care program to Statesman Health and Rehabilitation Center in Levittown, PA.

Dialysis is a process that can help treat someone who has kidney failure because it rids the body of toxic substances, fluids, and waste. This unit will help our residents who need to have their kidneys treated so their bodies can continue to stay healthy.

The on-site dialysis center is exclusively available to residents of Statesman, including long-term care and rehabilitation residents. DaVita dialysis patients who require short-term care at Statesman will be able to access traditional or home treatment options.

“We bring 20 years of experience as a leading kidney care provider,” said Dan Viaches, president of DaVita Post-Acute Services. “We appreciate that Saber Health trusts us to deliver high-quality care to the patients they serve.”

DaVita’s highly trained and dedicated care team members deliver on-site care to residents of Statesman, creating a more comfortable and convenient experience for many patients and their care partners.

“Statesman Health and Rehabilitation is so proud to bring this care model to our community. We look forward to meeting this need within our center and making the experience as comfortable as possible for our patients and residents,” said Cindy Woodward, NHA of Statesman.

Statesman provides 24-hour nursing services; occupational, physical and speech therapies; and on-site hemodialysis — reducing the discomfort, inconvenience, and cost of frequent transportation for treatment.

This program is also projected to reduce the total cost of care to payers like Medicare, as well as reduce hospital readmissions events. Skilled nursing facilities within the DaVita Post-Acute network will require minimized discharge planning to determine where a patient will receive dialysis after leaving the hospital, as hospitals will have the ability to send these patients directly to their home site of care for continued dialysis treatment.
