GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—CD Barnes Construction has been selected as the general contractor for the construction of the newest Fresenius Medical Care location in Grand Rapids.

Fresenius is the largest integrated provider of products and services for individuals undergoing dialysis due to chronic kidney failure and CD Barnes Construction is pleased to be partnering on this project with them.

“Fresenius Medical Care has an outstanding reputation for quality patient care. We look forward to providing them with a building in which to provide their life-saving services,” said Todd Oosting, executive vice president of CD Barnes Construction.

The center will consist of 16 dialysis stations, three private treatment rooms, office space, a staff lounge and locker area, nurse’s station and conference room. Construction of the project will take about three months, with the center scheduled to begin seeing patients in August of this year.
