In the very early 1970s, it became apparent to physicians in the U.S. that hemodialysis was an effective technique for keeping patients alive who had kidney failure. Southwestern Medical School and Parkland Memorial Hospital, under the guidance of Dr. Alan Hull, had participated in a federally funded program to determine if patients could indeed survive for long periods of time with this procedure.
Even in 1970, there were no dialysis facilities outside Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas. Dr. Hull began to explore options to replace the soon to be closed Public Health supported facility at the old Parkland Hospital (Woodlawn). The medical school and hospital advised him that he would have to seek outside funding. He began discussions with the then developing National Medical Care (NMC) in Boston, to build and manage a dialysis facility, resulting in the construction of the 5th limited care facility in the U.S., which opened in June 1971 as Southwestern Dialysis Center (SWDC).
