Renal Ventures Management, a Lakewood, Colo.-based dialysis services provider, said it plans to open a new division of vascular access centers next year.
RV Physician Partners will work with vascular surgeons, interventional nephrologists and interventional radiologists to minimize access failures and hospitalizations that are caused by access-related complications, according to a news release
The division will manage six to 10 physicians in 2013, with plans to grow to more than 50 physicians within the next five years, a spokeswoman said in an e-mail.
“The addition of RV Physician Partners’ outpatient vascular access services will enhance the continuum of care for our hemodialysis patients,” said Renal Ventures Management CEO Larry Chatfield in the news release. “Providing superior ongoing care and maintenance of vascular access improves not only continuity of care, but also clinical outcomes.”
Adrian Amedia, most recently vice president of business development for Vascular Access Centers, has been named president of RV Physician Partners. He is 36.
