"Broadening our integrated system to cover all aspects of the care continuum ... allows us to ensure our patients receive convenient access to high quality and seamless coordination of care across our health system."

Fresenius Medical Care cares for more than 170,000 people with end stage renal disease at over 2,200 dialysis clinics around the country.
