Northwest Kidney Council
Partnership for quality, safety and access to care
Who We Are
The Northwest Kidney Council (NWKC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting safety and access to quality care for the kidney community in Oregon and Washington. The Council was founded in 2019 as a coalition supporting patient advocates, health care professionals, care providers and researchers committed to shaping smart policy for individuals battling kidney disease in the Northwest.
The Northwest Kidney Council recognizes that access to optimal care not only increases a patient’s quality of life, but also prevents long-term complications and decreases hospitalizations. Learn more about issues important to the Northwest kidney community.
