PROPOSED DIALYSIS CENTER FOR YOSEMITE AND AIRPORT

Manteca will acquire a third kidney dialysis center

City Council, when it meets tonight at 7 p.m. in the Civic Center Council Chambers, 1001 W. Center St., is expected to approve an improvement agreement that will allow the project to proceed.

A big sticking point was the location-related improvements.

The Walnut Creek Company which builds dialysis centers for several clients chose to develop a 10,150 square foot medical office building designed as a dialysis center at the northeast corner of Airport Way and Yosemite Avenue.

Because this is a major intersection, off-site upgrades beyond typical facade upgrades are required, greatly increasing development costs.

The complex will include 16 hemodialysis stations, five home hemodialysis training stations for hypertensive heart disease and an ultrafiltration room.

Patients will be treated between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday. There is a shift change of employees approximately every four hours throughout the day. The dialysis center will employ between 20 and 25 people.

The site is offered with 42 parking spaces, nine less than the zoning ordinance calls for for a medical practice of its size.

The cost of the improvements is estimated at $837,992, including $204,773 for moving and modifying the traffic lights.

The developer will receive credits from the city for the Public Facilities Improvement Plan Fee they pay as their share for major street improvements in a specific area.

If the cost of the intersection improvement when constructed exceeds the figure of $837,932, the developer will be reimbursed for the additional expense when the city collects PFIP fees from other projects.
