NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Thursday for the Metro Development and Housing Agency dialysis clinic in Nashville.
Mayor Megan Barry was on hand at 10:30 a.m. as the Sanderling Dialysis Clinic was officially opened.
The new center will offer public housing residents and nearby neighbors on-site health care services, job training, and employment.
Together, MDHA and Sanderling estimate the clinic will create around 100 new jobs for MDHA residents over the next few years.
Four MDHA residents have already been hired as dialysis technician trainees.
The clinic also meets health requirements from most insurance companies and Medicare, so patients won’t have to travel so far for treatment.
