  Nation's Largest Kidney Care Coalition Announces Chairman Elect

WASHINGTON, Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --Dr. Edward R. Jones,
Chief of the Renal Section at Chestnut Hill Hospital in Philadelphia and
Clinical Professor of Medicine at Temple University Hospital, has been
selected chairman-elect of Kidney Care Partners (KCP) through the end of this

KCP, founded in 2003, is a broad-based coalition of physicians, providers,

together to improve quality of care for individuals with Chronic Kidney
Disease. KCP's goal is to bring together the kidney community to ensure:
chronic kidney disease patients receive optimal care; chronic kidney disease
patients are able to live quality lives; dialysis care is readily accessible
to all those in need; and research and development are supported to enhance
therapies and innovative products.

"I am honored to serve as Chair of KCP to ensure that our nation's most
vulnerable patients continue to have access to the highest quality care," said
Dr. Jones. "As a physician and a lifelong patient advocate, I believe it is
critical that patients with chronic kidney disease and end stage renal disease
have optimal regulatory and legislative representation in Washington. There
is no better way to make a meaningful difference for this vulnerable
population than through the voice of the entire kidney community."

Dr. Jones, a former KCP chair, is also past President of the Renal Physician's
Association (RPA) and represents the RPA at the American Medical Association
(AMA) and Kidney Care Partners. Dr. Jones has served on the RPA AMA Physician
Consortium for Performance Improvement (PCPI) responsible for the development
of physician performance measures. He is actively involved in public policy
and advocacy for nephrologists and kidney patients both at a State and
National levels.

Dr. Jones graduated from the Medical University of South Carolina, completed
his Internal medicine residency and was Chief Medical Resident at Temple
University Hospital. He was a renal fellow in the Renal and Electrolyte
Section of the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Jones received his MBA in
Healthcare Management from St Joseph's University in Philadelphia.

Ron Kuerbitz, President of Fresenius Medical Care of North America, currently
serves as Chairman of Kidney Care Partners.
