With more than 55,000 employees in the U.S. alone, they are also the continent’s top producer of dialysis equipment, dialyzers and related disposable products and a major supplier of renal pharmaceuticals, according to the fact sheet.

They have care clinics or offices in Tupelo, Oxford, Holly Springs and Corinth.
