Lockhart Nephrology Now Seeing Medicare patients

Dr. Ellen Grimm, ADC Nephrology, cuts the ribbon at Fresenius Medical Care grand re-opening in Lockhart, TX

Lockhart Nephrology Now Seeing Medicare patients

In addition to seeing patients on Tuesday, October 24, ADC Nephrologist Dr. Ellen Grimm added ribbon cutting to her skillset.  She was joined by Fresenius staff, community, and City of Lockhart Chamber of Commerce members under a bright blue Texas sky for the Grand Re-opening of the Fresenius Medical Care Lockhart Dialysis office.   Although the location opened 2 years ago, it recently obtained CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) Certification, which now allows patients with Medicare to be seen at this location.  Prior to certification, only patients with private insurance could be seen at the Lockhart facility.  Many Lockhart patients were traveling to San Marcos and other area offices to receive treatment prior to this certification.

Dr. Grimm shared her enthusiasm for her patients who will now seek and receive care closer to home. In addition to the ADC Lockhart clinic, Dr. Grimm sees patients in Luling and San Marcos.  Visit the links below for more information about Fresenius Medical Care, ADC Nephrology, and Dr. Grimm.  ADC nephrologists have partnered with Fresenius to provide dialysis services and treatment for chronic kidney diseases (CKD) patients.

ADC Clinical Supervisor Blanca Tristan and Dr. Grimm attend the open house.

Fresenius will host two more open houses to celebrate the same CMS certification at the following locations:

  • Bastrop, TX on Monday, October 30 at 3:30 pm
    3101 Hwy 71 East Suite 210, BastropTX 78602-3937
  • Kyle, TX on Friday, November 10 at 3:30 pm
    5895 Kyle Parkway, KyleTX 78640

Patients and the public are welcome to attend and meet Chamber of Commerce members for each city, enjoy refreshments, and attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
