The Future is Purple
- Fresenius Medical Care-backed project "Purple Truck" brings dialysis care to Australian outback.
People's life expectancy is increasing - and the world's population is growing. That is why high-quality medical care is becoming increasingly important. Fresenius worldwide aims to give as many people as possible access to health care and medicine.
We offer lifesaving and life-sustaining products and therapies in more than 90 countries. People who are treated with our products often suffer from severe or chronic diseases. Our task is to ensure the security and quality of supply of our products and services and to meet the highest safety and quality standards for all processes and therapies.
Our product and service portfolio includes a comprehensive clinic network, modern dialysis procedures, post-acute services such as rehabilitation, and high-quality medical products. We also offer digital healthcare services and novel forms of therapy, and invest in the expansion of primary care in emerging and developing countries.
Fresenius Medical Care supports the development of infrastructure for the care of people with kidney disease in order to provide affordable care to a growing number of patients. Innovative digital services and products help make it easier for patients to access healthcare services and provide greater flexibility. This vertically integrated organization is particularly advantageous in crisis situations and emergencies.
Fresenius Kabi offers products and services for the therapy and care of critically and chronically ill patients. The extensive range of intravenously administered generic drugs and the biosimilars products with a focus on autoimmune diseases and oncology are affordable alternatives to original drugs. Fresenius Kabi thus gives patients access to modern, high-quality and affordable therapies. The product portfolio also includes clinical nutrition and infusion therapies as well as the associated medical devices for application. In the field of transfusion medicine and cell therapy, the company offers products for collection of blood components and extracorporeal therapies.
Fresenius Helios' acute care hospitals, outpatient clinics, and other health care facilities offer the full range of medical services. Our international hospital network enables Fresenius Helios to transfer knowledge between health care systems in Germany, Spain and Latin America with regard to affordable health care of high-quality, and with very high standards of service and patient experience. During the COVID-19 pandemic, this international network has enabled an intensive knowledge exchange on the treatment of COVID-19 patients in order to improve treatment outcomes.
Fresenius Vamed plans and builds health care facilities worldwide. In addition, Fresenius Vamed provides operational management services and technical services focusing on building, construction and medical technology, sterile supply, information and communication technology, as well as infrastructural and commercial services. The business segment thus gives a growing number of people access to high-quality medical care.
As a health care Group, we have to be crisis-proof and respond flexibly in all areas: It is our task to enable unrestricted access to our services and seamless care for patients - even under difficult conditions. To ensure this, we have established high-performance as well as resilient emergency systems and programs in our business sectors.
Fresenius employees help patients and colleagues after devastating hurricanes.
With our social commitment we also pursue the goal of enabling and continuously improving access to health care for as many people as possible worldwide. Fresenius Medical Care's social commitment focuses on regional and local initiatives that support the interests of kidney patients. This includes emergency aid in crisis situations, e.g. through donations of dialysis machines and medical supplies, as well as long-term measures such as Kidney Kid, an initiative to educate children about kidney health at an early age. Fresenius Kabi and Fresenius Helios actively support social causes, including donations and local employee campaigns.
