New kidney dialysis clinic coming to south Everett in 2020

The center, near the Everett Mall, will offer treatment and training for at-home dialysis.

EVERETT —Northwest Kidney Centers plans to open an outpatient kidney dialysis clinic in South Everett in late 2020.

The clinic will be located in the Everett Mall Office Park on SE Everett Mall Way. The state Department of Health identified that area as high-need for dialysis stations, said Linda Sellers, public relations director for Northwest Kidney Centers.

It will have room for 54 patients to visit three times a week for dialysis, a blood-cleansing treatment that takes about four hours, according to an organization news release.

That frequency, working out to 12 hours a week not including travel, is routine for someone with permanent kidney failure, Sellers said.

“It’s a part-time job you can never quit,” she said.

Patients either need regular dialysis or a kidney transplant to stay alive.

The new clinic will hopefully cut down on travel time for some patients, Sellers said.

“Anytime you can have dialysis closer to home is a huge help for lifestyle,” she said.

This will be Northwest Kidney Centers’ first facility in Snohomish County. The company operates 19 dialysis centers in King, Pierce and Clallam counties.

The new 7,310-square-foot clinic is being designed by Seattle-based Mahlum Architects and will be built by Bothell’s Aldrich+Associates.

In addition to performing dialysis, staff at the center will train patients to do dialysis themselves at home and will offer free classes for those with kidney problems.

“You open up more options, you can do it in your own house or while you sleep,” Sellers said.

The clinic will employ up to 13 people full time.
