Fresenius Medical Care, the world's leading provider of products and services for individuals with renal diseases, is on a defined path of turning around the performance, and has outlined its strategy, as Helen Giza, CEO of Fresenius Medical Care, reported at today’s Annual General Meeting. “Our strategic roadmap starts with having an optimal structure in place”, Giza said in her speech to the shareholders, referring to the new operational model, which is in effect since January 1, 2023, and the proposed change of the legal form, which will be decided upon in an extraordinary general meeting on July 14, 2023. “We are just at the beginning of a new chapter in Fresenius Medical Care’s history, and I am energized and excited about our clear transformational turnaround plan under execution, supported by our 125,000 employees around the world. By 2025, Fresenius Medical Care will not only be a more agile and more resilient company, but also remain the partner of choice, setting the standard in kidney care with industry leading returns.” 

“There is no other global healthcare company with our expertise, scope, and scale in kidney care. Fresenius Medical Care is uniquely positioned to meet the demands for kidney care on a global basis”, Helen Giza said. “Today, our predictive analytics capabilities and continuous enhancement of medical algorithms are key parameters for improving the quality of outcomes and quality of life for our patients.”
