About the Clinic
The Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency and Sanderling Renal Services opened a dialysis clinic at the Atchison Community Center at Historic Preston Taylor Apartments, an MDHA-managed housing community, in fall 2016. The dialysis clinic and home dialysis program offers MDHA residents and nearby neighbors on-site health care services, job training and employment.
This innovative and collaborative program improves the quality of life for MDHA residents through health care and career opportunities. Together, MDHA and Sanderling estimate the clinic will create over 100 new jobs for Certified Clinical Hemodialysis Technicians during the first five years through its 10 station dialysis clinic at 3900 Clifton Ave. and through personalized home care. The clinic also employs on-site registered nurses. The nephrologists, who see patients at the facility, have admitting privileges to most Nashville area-hospitals and accommodate up to 60 in-center hemodialysis patients as well as a large number of home dialysis patients.

The clinic began providing services in the fall 2016, with home dialysis available beginning in 2019.
