RICHMOND, Va.— Canterbury Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center has launched a Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Management Program under the direction of Sajid Naveed, MD, MRCP, medical director. Located at 1776 Cambridge Drive in Richmond, the 190-bed skilled nursing facility provides post-hospital care, short-term rehab and long-term residential care.
Canterbury’s new CKD management program provides specialized care and services to patients with CKD and related diagnoses, aiming to preserve kidney function and prevent further decline through a balance of treatment and education. This includes protocols to reduce symptoms, decrease disability, increase quality of life and promote independence.
In addition to consults with Dr. Naveed and other board-certified specialists, Canterbury’s CKD program features diabetic management, health coaching and dietary education, on-site pulmonary rounding, and routine medical management of associated co-morbidities, among other services and therapies. On-site hemodialysis will be available soon.
“Canterbury continues to expand its range of specialty offerings, introducing programs like this to meet area healthcare needs,” noted Nikki Gachot, regional director of market development at Marquis Health Consulting Services, which supports Canterbury. “Dr. Naveed is working closely the facility’s dedicated care team, focusing on the often-complex needs of those with chronic kidney disease to ensure the best possible outcome for each patient.”
Canterbury is committed to serving as a healthcare resource for area residents. Together with Marquis, it has established a resource library of physician-curated content, addressing many topics of interest for families of patients and the larger community. The library and more information on the skilled nursing facility can be found at canterburyrehab.com.
