BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Fresenius Medical Care opened up a brand new dialysis center on Mall View Road Thursday, Feb. 27.
Many people living on the eastside of town had to drive up to 30 minutes for treatment before this new center was opened.
The staff held a ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday and allowed people to see what they have to offer.
They have 24 dialysis stations and four training suites for people that wish to do dialysis at home.
They will be open Monday through Saturday to better serve more patients.
The new location joins FMC's network of over 2,100 dialysis centers.
