About DCI

Dialysis Clinic, Inc. (DCI) provides comprehensive and personalized care for patients in all stages of kidney disease. We offer a variety of treatment types to cater to all patients, including hemodialysis, home dialysis and peritoneal dialysis. We take a holistic approach and recognize our patients as individuals with specific needs, who rely on and trust us to provide tailored care and support so that they can live full, meaningful and productive lives.

Since 1971, Nashville-based DCI employs approximately 5,000 people across 28 states and serves over 14,000 patients. DCI’s mission, "The Care of the Patient is our Reason for Existence" has never changed, nor has our compassionate leadership. Our founder, Dr. Keith Johnson, still leads DCI today, along with his son and vice chairman of the board, Dr. Doug Johnson. Together, they have built an organization with a culture that truly embodies what it means to be patient-focused, with employees who go above and beyond with heart and passion each day.

DCI’s commitment to patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and the CKD community is deeply rooted and the driving force behind everything we do. In fact, when forming DCI over 50 years ago, Dr. Johnson was adamant that DCI would be a not-for-profit organization. At the time, 80% of dialysis patients had no way to pay for their treatment and often had to make sacrifices in order to receive lifesaving care. Dr. Keith Johnson refused to profit from this dire situation, and instead took his dedication a step further and committed extra revenue to fund research in the field of kidney disease. Since then, DCI has grown to become the largest not-for-profit dialysis provider in the country.
