About Satellite Healthcare

Satellite Healthcare is more than simply a dialysis company. Since our founding in 1974, we have become the industry’s leader in personalized quality care: 70% of our centers earn 4- and 5-star ratings from Medicaid and, far ahead of all other providers. Our success in caring for patients can be attributed to our mission, our not-for-profit structure, and our people. Together, they create a powerfully patient-centered organization.

Our mission is clear: to make life better for people living with kidney disease. Because we are a non-profit, we can pursue that mission with all our resources, united by our passion for patient care. As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, Satellite Research explores new ways to elevate the effectiveness and delivery of dialysis therapy. And Satellite Wellbound is leading the industry in home dialysis because better outcomes and quality of life are our highest priority. We are also substantial contributors to community and philanthropic kidney initiatives.

Across our organization, we share a single mission – to make life better for those living with kidney disease. Watch our video to learn more about our mission.
