SAN JOSE, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Satellite Healthcare, one of the nation's first and leading not-for-profit providers of kidney dialysis services and a major sponsor of kidney research, continues to honor its commitment to San Francisco Bay Area patients with five new dialysis center openings in the past six months, and plans for new centers before the end of the year.
“Our goal is to provide those with kidney disease convenient access to the very best in dialysis care. Our recent success doing so in the Bay Area makes me proud to be a part of an organization that is making a visible difference in our community.”
The new locations, which began opening their doors in March, have brought dialysis services to local residents with End Stage Renal Disease in Oakland, San Jose, San Leandro, Daly City and surrounding communities. In addition to the convenience of new in-center dialysis treatment offerings, Satellite also opened a new home dialysis treatment center in Daly City offering patients the option of receiving training for at-home dialysis.
“As a local not-for-profit organization, our commitment to the Bay Area is a part of our DNA and has been since we opened our doors 40 years ago,” said Marc Branson, Satellite Healthcare’s Executive Vice President. “Our goal is to provide those with kidney disease convenient access to the very best in dialysis care. Our recent success doing so in the Bay Area makes me proud to be a part of an organization that is making a visible difference in our community.”
