Fresenius Kidney Care: Helping People With
CKD and ESRD Thrive

At Fresenius Kidney Care, we’re passionately committed to helping people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end stage renal disease (ESRD) lead fuller, more active and vibrant lives. 

As a division of Fresenius Medical Care North America (FMCNA), we’re part of a network of companies dedicated to one mission: providing superior care that improves the quality of life for every patient, every day. With access to the vast resources of our global parent company, Fresenius Medical Care AG & Co. KGaA, the world’s leading innovator in kidney care and the largest provider of dialysis products and services, we’re uniquely equipped to provide comprehensive quality care to all of our patients. From state-of-the-art dialysis equipment to the world’s most advanced dialysis treatment services and patient support services, FMCNA helps nearly 200,000 people with CKD and ESRD improve their lives every day.

At the end of each day, over 67,000 FMCNA employees share the same singular commitment of providing the best care to everyone we treat, wherever they may be—at home, in center, in the hospital or at the physician’s office.

Caring for the Whole “You”

At Fresenius Kidney Care, we understand that helping you live a fuller, more active and vibrant life is about much more than providing you with the best dialysis care. It’s about caring for the whole “you.”

That’s why we use our vast resources to support your emotional, medical, dietary, and financial resource needs.

We also provide educational support for people living with CKD, including our KidneyCare:365 class. This free program helps you learn about kidney health, eating well, thriving with CKD, and your treatment choices.

When it’s time to begin dialysis, we’ll help you learn about in-center hemodialysis, at-home peritoneal dialysis or at-home hemodialysis. At the same time, we can also help you better understand other options such as kidney transplant and what to expect if you choose not to treat your kidney disease, opting instead for supportive or palliative care. While we believe it is possible to live a full life with kidney disease, we honor and respect every person’s right to choose treatment or nontreatment.


Fresenius is pronounced “Freh-SEN-ee-us”
