Innovative Renal Care Acquires Kidney Treatment Center of San Antonio

NASHVILLE, Tenn. & SAN ANTONIO--(Business Wire)--Innovative Renal Care (IRC), a brand of American Renal Associates (ARA), announced today its acquisition of the assets of Kidney Treatment Center of San Antonio (KTC), an independently owned and operated patient-centered renal dialysis company offering highly personalized care to patients across three dialysis centers in San Antonio.

The acquisition includes all three KTC clinics, Northwest, West and East. KTC patients will continue to have access to high-quality services and resources, and Dr. Bruce Brockway, the former owner of the KTC dialysis centers, is continuing as the medical director of the KTC Northwest location. In addition, Dr. Srinath Tamirisa is serving as the medical director of the KTC West Location, and Dr. Oscar Iznaola is serving as the medical director of the KTC East Location. The three clinics, which are currently accepting new patients, will be renamed as IRC San Antonio - Medical Drive, IRC San Antonio - Castroville Road and IRC San Antonio - South New Braunfels.

“We are honored to acquire the KTC dialysis centers and to build on their long legacy of excellent patient care so that we further strengthen the centers’ delivery capabilities to serve even more patients,” said Nick Mendez, CEO of ARA. “It’s a privilege to work with an individual like Dr. Brockway who has spent his career dedicated to serving patients and providing the best care possible. KTC shares our philosophy of patient centered care, and we’re looking forward to doing great work together.”

KTC provides a comprehensive array of services to patients with end stage renal disease, including dialysis, hemodialysis, nutritional support, and social services support. As part of IRC, each of the three centers will implement expanded home therapy programs for medically appropriate patients.

“Our primary goal is to improve our patients’ quality of life by meeting their medical needs,” said Bruce Brockway, M.D., medical director of KTC. “IRC provided us a unique opportunity to further strengthen the KTC dialysis centers through a commitment to a patient-centered model of care and focus on quality of life.”

As the San Antonio and Central Texas communities continue to experience rapid population growth as the healthcare needs of patients with kidney related disease evolve, IRC will have further opportunities for strengthening care delivery and patient experience that reflect recent innovations in kidney care.
