Dialysis Facility Tracker

By Robin Fields, Al Shaw, and Jennifer LaFleur, ProPublica, Dec. 22, 2010

This site is for dialysis patients and others who want to learn about the quality of care at individual dialysis clinics. Among other things, you can learn how often patients treated at a facility have been hospitalized, report certain types of infections or are placed on the transplant list. The information is submitted by facilities and collected by contractors of the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services, the federal agency that oversees most dialysis care.
