WASHINGTON—Howard University Hospital (HUH), and American Renal Associates, LLC (ARA), announced today that effective March 1, 2012, HUH and ARA began a partnership to jointly own and operate Howard University Dialysis, LLC, located in the hospital at 2041 Georgia Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20060.
HUH has a longstanding tradition of providing extraordinary care dating back to 1862 when it opened its doors in converted army barracks. Originally called Freedmen’s Hospital, HUH has traditionally provided the highest in quality care to Washington residents as well as being a refuge for people who have been denied medical care elsewhere.
HUH CEO Larry Warren said the hospital is thrilled about its partnership with ARA.
“Among other things, ARA brings a depth and breadth of understanding of dialysis facility operations as well as a management team that fits so well with what we were looking for in a partner,” Warren said. “Our facility will continue in the HUH tradition and provide high quality dialysis services to those in need in the DC and surrounding areas.”
Joseph Carlucci, CEO and co-founder of ARA, echoed Warren’s sentiments.
