Renal Ventures Management Announces Formation of RV Physician Partners
LAKEWOOD, Colo. --(Business Wire)--
Ventures Management LLC, a leading provider of dialysis services
for patients suffering from chronic kidney failure, announces the
formation of RV Physician Partners LLC, a new division of vascular
access centers slated to open in 2013.
"The addition of RV Physician Partners' outpatient vascular access
services will enhance the continuum of care for our hemodialysis
patients," said Larry Chatfield, CEO of Renal Ventures Management.
"Providing superior ongoing care and maintenance of vascular access
improves not only continuity of care, but also clinical outcomes."
Access related complications are the leading cause of hospitalizations
for End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) patients. This is especially true
with patients who have venous catheters for temporary access. RV
Physician Partners will work with Vascular Surgeons, Interventional
Nephrologists and Interventional Radiologists to minimize access
failures an hospitalizations by providing more accessible and more
affordable alternatives to existing options.
To lead the new company, Renal Ventures brought on Adrian Amedia (News - Alert), a
renal industry veteran with over 18 years of experience, to serve as
president of RV Physician Partners. Amedia recently departed Vascular
Access Centers (VAC), where he served as vice president of business
development and was responsible for opening new facilities, improving
physician reimbursement and recruiting interventional physicians to work
in VAC-owned, office-based surgery practices.
Prior to his time at VAC, Amedia worked at DaVita for six years as
director of business development and operations, where he was
responsible for developing 32 free-standing vascular access centers
throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Earlier in his career, Amedia
worked in an executive role at Health Informatics (News - Alert) and in various
clinical and administrative roles at Renal Disease Management before the
company was sold to Renal Care Group.
