Satellite Healthcare Opens Dialysis Center in Silver Creek

Open House to be Held on April 9th

San Jose, CA - April 3, 2013 — 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, is pleased to announce the opening of a Satellite Dialysis location in the Silver Creek section of San Jose, California. The center will host an open house on April 9th from 3:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Based in San Jose, Satellite Healthcare operates dialysis centers throughout Northern California, and in several states nationwide. The new in-center Silver Creek location will be Satellite's fifth such dialysis center in San Jose alone.

The Silver Creek open house is the second in a series of events celebrating Satellite's new dialysis centers in the San Francisco Bay Area. Satellite opened a location in Oakland earlier this year, and more openings are planned throughout the region over the next 18 months.

“Our mission at Satellite Healthcare is to raise awareness of Chronic Kidney Disease and provide convenient access to dialysis care to those in need,” said Marc Branson, Satellite Healthcare's Executive Vice President. “The new center at Silver Creek furthers both of those goals.”

More than 26 million Americans have Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), with an additional 20 million - including African-Americans, Latinos, Pacific Islanders, and American Indians - at increased risk. Satellite Healthcare has more than 40 in-center locations and 18 home-dialysis centers nationwide, servicing more than 5,500 patients coast-to-coast.

The new Silver Creek center is located at 1620 E. Capitol Expressway. For more information about the center or its services, please contact 408.754.3400.

Without home dialysis, I couldn’t have gone to school to become a renal dietitian. I dialyze while studying, and now I’m at Johns Hopkins University.”
