Echo portfolio company Strive Health recently announced that Regence health plans are bringing Strive’s comprehensive kidney care program to Medicare Advantage (MA) and commercially insured members living with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage kidney disease (ESKD). This program includes a regional, state-of-the-art Strive Health Kidney Care Center that recently opened in Medford, Oregon.

This value-based kidney care initiative, which includes the opening of an innovative dialysis center, addresses long-term treatment costs and improves quality of life.

“Kidney disease requires a fresh and comprehensive approach centered around the patient,” said Chris Riopelle, CEO of Strive Health. “Regence and Strive Health will offer transformative care to address the clinical and social determinants impacting kidney disease in a way that also controls long-term healthcare costs. We are thrilled to bring our Kidney Heroes™ teams to Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Utah, where they can deliver compassionate and complete care to enhance member quality of life.”
