“A Total Win” as Concerto and Ignite Expand Partnership

Leading nursing home dialysis provider and luxury skilled nursing operator to bring home dialysis options for patients in the Kansas/Missouri area.

Concerto Renal Services – which in 2019 became the first provider of home dialysis in a Kansas skilled nursing facility (SNF) – is expanding its services to Kansas City, Missouri at Ignite Medical Resorts’ KC Northland facility. The expansion means that select Missouri SNF residents will be able to receive dialysis at their home facility, a first in the state.

Concerto is the nation’s leading provider of SNF dialysis and is now servicing patients nationally. Onsite dialysis allows SNF residents to avoid traveling to an outpatient facility three days weekly. The benefits of SNF dialysis are enhanced due to COVID-19, offering residents and SNFs better protection from coronavirus exposure and community transmission.

Having recently partnered in Wisconsin, Concerto and Ignite’s newest collaboration is at the latter’s brand new 90-bed Northland facility, which offers luxury accommodations and amenities along with advanced clinical programs. “We’re thrilled to expand our footprint in the Kansas City market,” notes Concerto Chief Executive Officer Shimmy Meystel. Describing SNF dialysis as a necessity for SNFs in light of the pandemic, Meystel highlights the clinical advantages for SNFs embracing Concerto’s dialysis care-in-place model: “SNF dialysis functions as insurance for infection control for patients and SNF operators. We’re thankful that Ignite understands and appreciates this reality.”

Ignite, with facilities adopting a “medical resort” model, focuses on rapid rehabilitation with state-of-the art clinical programs alongside luxurious accommodations. “Our partnership with Concerto is an example of how Ignite values innovation and value-added amenities for our guests, allowing them to recover and recuperate and regain their independence as quickly as possible” says Chief Executive Officer Tim Fields. “Allowing our dialysis guests to receive dialysis within our beautiful new space is benefit as they receive more therapy time and avoid transporting out, reducing COVID exposure,” proclaims Fields.

Concerto’s partnership with Ignite is poised to continue growing in the Kansas City metropolitan area. “We’re already in the planning stages on the Kansas side of the border,” notes Meystel, adding that “our continued partnership is a total win for SNF residents and the health care system in general.” Concerto and Ignite attribute their partnership to a shared vision. “Ignite and Concerto haven’t forgotten that we’re in a service industry,” concludes Fields. “It is our job to make the SNF experience as safe and comfortable as possible, and our partnership helps both providers accomplish that.”
