Fresenius, Waltham, Mass., divested the clinics as part of its deal to acquire Liberty Dialysis Holdings, Mercer Island, Wash. The Federal Trade Commission required the disposal as a condition of its review of the deal.
Terms were not disclosed.
The deal brings DSI's total holdings to 85 dialysis clinics; it also operates home and acute-care programs in 23 states.
