Northwest Kidney Centers Launches Capital Campaign For $5 Million Comprehensive Kidney Resource Center
SEATTLE, April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Northwest Kidney Centers has launched a campaign to raise $1.5 million of the $5 million needed to turn its 700 Broadway building into a comprehensive kidney resource center. The center supports the three key areas of the nonprofit's mission – patient care, education and research.
Northwest Kidney Centers, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary as the first dialysis organization in the world – has already raised $1.25 million thanks to early gifts.
A lead gift of $450,000 was made from the estate of John and Susie Morganti, long-time supporters of the organization. PACCAR Inc, a supporter of Northwest Kidney Centers for 46 years, donated $100,000."This new comprehensive kidney resource center – unique in the United States – will house an array of patient-focused services," said Joyce F. Jackson, chief executive and president of Northwest Kidney Centers. "In addition to an updated community dialysis clinic, the center will house our expanded kidney-specialty pharmacy and a clinical research center for kidney research." The building also will include three new conference rooms, an education and training center for new dialysis patients, and a demonstration kitchen to expand teaching and learning opportunities for patients, families, physicians and the community. The first floor will include a Heritage Gallery showcasing important artifacts that illustrate Northwest Kidney Centers' standing as the first out-of-hospital dialysis provider in the world. "We want this to be a valuable resource for all of our patients and their families – a place where they can learn about ways to improve their health and manage their disease," Jackson said. The new facility benefits people who face the epidemic of chronic kidney disease, which affects one in seven American adults.
