Chiefland and Levy County residents needing the blood-filtering effects of kidney dialysis will soon find they need not travel far. That’s because Chiefland is about to have its own kidney dialysis facility.
Ron Colvin, field superintendent for the construction company overseeing the project, said the facility, started in October, should be completed by mid January.
The building, owned by Fresenius Medical Care, is of modular construction and is about 7,000 square feet. Colvin said the building is meant to handle up to10 patients at a time.
