The Bronx, NY (September, 2021) – The Rogosin Institute (Rogosin) – New York’s premier center for treatment of kidney disease – announced the opening of a new state-of-the-art dialysis center in The Methodist Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation in the Bronx. The dialysis center is a collaboration between Rogosin and Methodist Home to provide the local community and residents of the Methodist Home with the best possible care for those who require dialysis treatments. As Rogosin’s first Bronx based dialysis center we offer the same outstanding quality care as provided in the other centers across Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens, that already serve approximately 1500 patients. The new 5,000 square foot facility includes 16 dialysis stations staffed with a medical director and specially trained nurses and dialysis technicians.

We are excited to bring our leading model of care to the Bronx community and look forward to welcoming our first patients.”
We are thrilled to be offering this new service to our residents and local community.” said Maria Perez, CEO & Administrator of the Methodist Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation. “As a mission-driven organization ourselves, The Rogosin Institute is the perfect partner for our new dialysis center because of their commitment to excellence and continued research in kidney health.”
The Rogosin Institute has long been recognized as one of the preeminent centers for the diagnosis and management of kidney disease in the country and recognized for its comprehensive approach to the prevention, detection, and management of chronic and end-stage kidney disease.
