Medicare-Certified Dialysis Facilities (2016)

Today’s map of the day details the distribution of Medicare-Certified Dialysis Facilities of 2016. Compared to the Eastern region of the United States, it seems the presence of dialysis clinics in the mid-west is lower. Check out the map above, and try to think of a reason for why that may be.

Any ideas?
