The diagnosis of kidney failure can change a patient’s life forever. PSKC is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of those with kidney disease through outstanding dialysis care, education and community support. PSKC care teams provide the support patients need to enable them to transition successfully into healthy living on dialysis, or as successful kidney transplant recipients.

Currently, one in seven U.S. adults has chronic kidney disease. With the progression of chronic kidney disease, the kidneys eventually stop functioning resulting in End Stage Kidney Disease (also known as End Stage Renal Disease) or kidney failure. Today, over 800,000 Americans have End Stage Kidney Disease and are dependent on dialysis or a transplant to sustain their life.
