New Dialysis Center Coming to North Main Street

City officials signed a lease Tuesday morning, bringing a new dialysis center to North Main Street.

Officials say the new center, based out of the old CVS Pharmacy, is a perfect addition.

Evansville's North Main Street corridor is looking very different from even a couple of years ago, but revitalization can mean more than just new burger joints or places to window shop.

Kelley Coures, Executive Director of Evansville's Department of Metropolitan Development said,"its a win for the tax payers, its a win for people in the neighborhood who need renal care, and we think its a win for Deaconess Hospital that they now have a location close to their patients."

City officials signed a lease with Davita, the renal care provider for Deaconess Hospital.

The plan is to make dialysis more accessible for the Jacobsville area, which has one of the highest levels of kidney disease in the Tri-State.

Coures said, "this is a way to bring the service to them, so they don't have to travel quite so far."

Right now, Gateway is the closest option for renal care.

But patients aren't the only one's getting excited about the newest addition to 800 North Main Street.

Courtney Jenkins' family have been North Main business owner's for nearly thirty years, and say any and all new additions to the area are good for business, especially after the last couple of years.

Jenkins said,”the neighborhoods changed a lot with people moving out and the empty houses, for a while they were just tearing them down not building anything in its place. Anything that brings people down to North Main is good for us, everyone can use furniture and clothes."

City officials say Davita will spend 1.5 - 2 million dollars on the project.

Renovations are expected to take at least seven months.
