DSI Renal, a provider of dialysis services for patients suffering from chronic kidney failure, has opened its DSI Lyman Dialysis clinic in Lyman.

“We are so pleased to open the doors of this impressive new facility in Lyman, which will help meet increased demand for dialysis services in this rapidly expanding area,” said Dr. Mark Purcell, DSI Lyman Dialysis medical director, in a news release.

DSI Renal operates four other clinics in South Carolina, all of which are in the Upstate, with two in Greenville, one in Easley and one in Simpsonville, according to its website.

DSI Lyman Dialysis, at 208 Holly Springs Road near Interstate 29, offers patient heated massage chairs, individual station flat-screen TVs and Internet access, among other features. The facility will also soon offer peritoneal dialysis training for in-home treatment.

DSI Renal said it plans for growth through acquisition and development of new clinics, as well as through establishment of additional joint venture partnerships with nephrologists for the clinic, hospital and alternate settings.

“It is extremely gratifying to offer a more convenient location for dialysis patients in Lyman, which translates into less traveling to access frequent and necessary dialysis treatments and a less disrupted lifestyle,” said Purcell, also a physician with Carolina Nephrology of the Upstate.

The clinic will host an open house today from 5 to 8 p.m. Lyman Mayor Rodney D. Turner will host a ribbon cutting ceremony at 6:30 p.m.

Together with its physician partners, DSI Renal owns and operates 88 dialysis clinics in 23 states.
