Circle Medical Management opened its doors in 1988. We started with a 10 station incenter program and a home peritoneal dialysis program. Since that time we have grown to 28 stations and added new services and technology.
In the mid 1990's we began providing onsite home dialysis services to residents of skilled nursing facilities. In 2005 we became the first provided in Illinois to offer daily home hemodialysis using the NxStage technology. We have also been the provider of inpatient dialysis therapies to Rush University Medical Center since 1988, providing bed side dialysis using the most advanced technologies.
