Colquitt County - Dialysis patients in one south Georgia county are being treated like kings and queens.

Colquitt Regional Medical Center's news dialysis center has more than twice the space than the old one and two dozen stations. Walter Springer spends four hours, three days a week, getting treatment. He says, "The space is larger. We have a lot of access to things. Just a larger space. We have a nicer facility here."

Patients can take their own laptops to hook up to the Internet. There are dozens of televisions and a telephone for each recliner.

The center also has a physicians office with doctors who specialize in kidney conditions. The hospital built the center to meet the growing number of dialysis patients.
