About Coryell Dialysis
BRINGING ACCESS TO GATESVILLE
The building of Coryell Dialysis was made possible by a generous donation from Lucile Garrett Plane, a philanthropist, community leader and pioneer for women in her field of corrections. Mrs. Plane refused to let a lack of access to transportation get in the way of community members’ healthcare needs.
