Ribbon-cutting Marks Early 2012 Opening of Saul & Sonia Modes Schottenstein Dialysis Pavilion


COLUMBUS, OHIO – Sonia Modes Schottenstein, her family, and friends joined Wexner Heritage Village President/CEO David Rosen at a private ribbon-cutting ceremony last week for the Saul & Sonia Modes Schottenstein Dialysis Pavilion - a new dialysis center made possible in part by a generous gift from Ms. Modes Schottenstein.

"What Sonia has made possible will enable specialized dialysis services to be available to individuals on our campus- something that, until today, we could only dream about providing,” said Rosen. “Her commitment to bringing hope, dignity, and an improved quality of life to these individuals will never be forgotten."

The dialysis center, scheduled to open in early 2012 at Wexner Heritage Village, will be housed in renovated space designated as The Kidney Center of Bexley - a state-of-the-art 15-station outpatient dialysis treatment suite, and one of the largest in central Ohio. This new facility is the result of a partnership between Wexner Heritage Village and American Renal Associates, whose highly credentialed medical specialists will provide patient care to those residing on the WHV campus, as well as in the community.

Ms. Modes Schottenstein has had a long relationship with Wexner Heritage Village. Her late husband, Saul, contributed to the building of Wexner Heritage House, and she has brought joy to residents there for more than 50 years with her musical performances.

At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Ms. Modes Schottenstein shared that her family - and particularly her brother who is a dialysis patient - were a tremendous source of inspiration for making the dialysis center a reality:

"I knew I had to do anything I could to help make treatment easier for dialysis patients,” she said. “That's the least I can do. I can't tell you how good I feel that I am helping people."
