Renal Care Community Partnerships

Kidney Community Partnerships 

Renal Healthcare Association recognizes we are a part of a larger community. As such, we’ve joined forces with other organizations whose mission aligns with our own. This has enabled us to work together to improve patient care and advance the independent and community-based dialysis industry. Our community partners allow us to enhance our educational resources for our members, improve services, and advocate for members on a larger scale.

We would like to thank our community partners for their continued support of Renal Healthcare Association. If your organization would also like to partner with us, please reach out to us at

The Making Dialysis Safer for Patients Coalition is a partnership of organizations and individuals that have joined forces with the common goal of promoting the use of CDC’s core interventions and resources to prevent dialysis bloodstream infections.  Launched in September 2016, the Coalition’s goals are to:

  1. Facilitate the implementation and adoption of core interventions
  2. Increase awareness through educational efforts 
  3. Share experiences and findings through collaboration with other Coalition participants 

Renal Healthcare Association is a proud member and supporter of the Coalition and its efforts. To learn more about the Coalition visit
