 Evergreen Nephrology and Western Kentucky Kidney Specialists Announce Partnership

NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 29, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Evergreen Nephrology is pleased to announce a new partnership with Western Kentucky Kidney Specialists. The partnership will provide a multi-dimensional approach to delivering personalized care for those living with chronic kidney disease in southwestern Kentucky.

Working closely with nephrologists, Evergreen provides personalized care plans to improve the outcomes and quality of life for patients in their kidney care journey. Key initiatives of the partnership with Western Kentucky Kidney Specialists include:

  • Delaying disease progression
  • Shifting care to the home
  • Addressing social determinants of health

“People living with kidney disease face unique challenges, commonly managing multiple chronic health conditions,” said Scott Lloyd, Chief Development and Strategy Officer at Evergreen Nephrology. “In close coordination with Western Kentucky Kidney Specialists, Evergreen’s services will make it easier for patients and their caregivers to access the services they need to address all their health needs, including connecting them with resources which already exist in their community.”

According to the US Renal Data System, each year an estimated $200 billion dollars a year is spent fighting kidney disease in the U.S., often because nephrologists are not able to be involved in the patient’s care early enough. Evergreen empowers nephrology groups across the country with clinical, technical, and financial support to change the outlook for their patients early on in their kidney care journey.

“This collaborative value-based-care approach with Evergreen Nephrology builds on our commitment to provide our patients with optimal care,” said Shaukat Ali, M.D., President and Senior Nephrologist of Western Kentucky Kidney Specialists. “With Evergreen being the leader in patient-centered kidney care, we believe this partnership will provide unprecedented resources and value to our patients living with chronic kidney disease.”
