Non-profit dialysis provider Satellite Healthcare has acquired three dialysis centers in Laredo, Texas. Satellite Healthcare acquired the centers from DSI Renal effective and they are now known as Satellite Healthcare Laredo, Satellite Healthcare South Laredo, and Satellite Healthcare West Laredo. The addition of the new locations brings the number of in-center and home therapy facilities the organization operates in Texas to 12.

The dialysis provider currently serves more than 7,000 patients at 82 centers across the country, and is the 6th largest dialysis provider in the country.

Dr. Adolfo Garcia, a nephrologist with more than 35 years of experience, will oversee medical operations as the Medical Director of the three centers. Garcia joined Satellite Healthcare from DSI, along with a staff of 50. The centers currently serve approximately 250 patients.

“I’m looking forward to working with Satellite to help fulfill its mission of making life better for those living with kidney disease,” said Dr. Garcia. “I am confident that Satellite’s focus on whole-person care, including offering alternatives to traditional dialysis therapy such as nocturnal and home dialysis therapies, will significantly benefit members of the diverse communities we serve here.”

Satellite Healthcare opened its first dialysis center in Texas in 2006. In addition to its new centers in Laredo, it operates facilities and provides renal services in Austin, Houston, Kyle, San Antonio, and Round Rock.
