Dialysis Facility Compare datasets

These are the official datasets used on the Medicare.gov Dialysis Facility Compare Website provided by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.  These data allow you to compare the quality of care provided in Medicare-certified dialysis facilities nationwide.
