The 9,800-square-foot center, the Ohio Renal Care Group at Farnsworth, will be able to treat up to 200 kidney patients a week. It is a partnership among MetroHealth, Cleveland Clinic and Fresenius Kidney Care. The open, modern facility has treatment rooms that offer Wi-Fi and heated massage chairs. The center strives to empower people to live the healthiest, fullest way possible – with kidney disease treatments that fit in with life.
