Partnership With Evergreen Nephrology

KSM is thrilled to be partnering with Evergreen Nephrology to improve the lives of people living with kidney disease in the Minnesota twin cities and beyond. Patients living with kidney disease deserve the best care and we are committed to improving patient outcomes and improving quality of life by delaying disease progression, shifting care to the home, and accelerating kidney transplants.

KSM & Evergreen Better Together

Vascular Access Care

Access to the bloodstream is a crucial lifeline for many chronic dialysis patients. KSM works closely with the providers at Minnesota Vascular Surgery Center (MVSC) to ensure that our patients are seen by the area’s best vascular surgeons. MVSC provides thorough and prompt management of all hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis accesses.

Clinical Research

KSM has partnered with Nucleus Network Minneapolis (formerly known as Prism Clinical Research) to help advance the care of patients with kidney disease.

Value Based Care

KSM was one of the first nephrology practices in the country to participate in the Medicare ESCO program (End-stage renal disease Seamless Care Organization). The program seeks to provide person-centered high quality care that simultaneously improves outcomes and reduces the total cost of care. KSM will also participate in the upcoming CKCC and ETC programs that will continue to work towards these lofty goals

Interwell Health

KSM is one of the original members of Interwell Health, a collaborative organization of nephrologists with a common goal of driving innovation for renal patients.

Operating a practice as large and diverse as KSM requires a great deal of support. KSM's CEO, Carrie El-Halawani, leads a team of talented administrative and clinical staff who enable us to bring the best possible nephrology care to our patients.
