Avera Offers A to Z Care
Fred Manfred of Luverne, Minn., has been in kidney failure for the past 33 years, and dialysis is his only option for life-sustaining treatment. He travels to Sioux Falls for dialysis three days a week, spending up to four hours hooked to a dialysis machine. Because dialysis is such a big part of his life, the decision of where he receives that care is an important one.
For several reasons, Manfred chose Avera. He is a patient of Dr. Robert Santella of Avera Medical Group Nephrology Sioux Falls. "First of all, I knew my physician would be in the same building, just two floors down, if I ever had any problem. That was very important to me. Also, Avera offers all the medical services I might need, A to Z, on one campus. I often have doctor appointments after dialysis, so all I need to do is get in the elevator and go down two floors."
He appreciates the extra touches that Avera is putting into its new dialysis center, all with the patient in mind. This includes a specially designed chair with heat and massage that Fred helped select.
He also looks forward to the center’s design, which includes plenty of windows. "The entire south wall will be windows. Because I spend so many hours in a dialysis center, daylight is very important to me. These seem like little things, but to dialysis patients, they mean a lot."
