Every second dialysis machine worldwide

Established in 1979, the Schweinfurt, Germany plant is Fresenius Medical Care’s largest development and production facility for dialysis machines and other medical-technical devices. Every second dialysis machine produced worldwide comes out of Schweinfurt or its sister plant in Concord, California. Dialysis machines are among the most important products for treating chronic kidney disease. They pump the patient’s blood into a dialyzer, which allows it to be cleaned outside of the body. They also deliver the dialysis solutions necessary to cleanse the blood, administer anticoagulants to prevent blood clotting, and monitor the dialysis treatment. More than 800,000 dialysis machines have been produced so far in Schweinfurt. Fresenius Medical Care employs about 1,200 people at the facility.

Successful in China for more than 30 years

China has played a major role in the development of Fresenius.

Fresenius Kabi now operates four plants in China. It is the market leader in parenteral nutrition, a leading supplier of infusion therapies, and one of the largest foreign-based pharmaceutical companies in the country. Fresenius Medical Care also operates its own production facilities. In addition, the company is operating eleven dialysis clinics and five hospitals in China.

Using protons to take on cancer

One of the most advanced cancer treatments, proton beam therapy works by radiating the tumor with positively charged hydrogen atoms, and has major advantages over traditional radiation therapy. In 2020, Quirónsalud, the Spanish hospital group of Fresenius Helios,  has opened that country’s first proton beam therapy center.Quirónsalud has opted for the Proteus One, a unique proton beam therapy system which, unlike others systems, allows all the technology necessary for treatment to be grouped together in one multifunctional room. It includes a tumor-scanning system to help doctors determine the optimal dose for each part of the body being treated, as well as a state-of-the-art imaging systems. And Proteus One can rotate 360 degrees, to direct the beam from any desired angle.

Helping patients to conquer illiteracy

Despite Argentina’s high overall literacy rate, a third of Fresenius Medical Care’s patients in the country do not have a primary school diploma. This results directly in a high rate of functional illiteracy. Yet having these patients coming regularly to the same location, where they will required to sit largely immobile for four hours, free from outside distractions, also represents an opportunity to help.This opportunity is one that Fresenius Medical Care started using in 2008 by working with government to open a “school” for patients in a company dialysis clinic. In cooperation with the education ministries of several provinces, 18 of these schools are now operating in Fresenius Medical Care clinics in Argentina, each staffed by teachers specializing in adult education. Sixteen of the schools teach a general primary school curriculum with a heavy emphasis on reading and writing (five of them also offer secondary school courses), while two teach basic computer skills. With company and education officials delighted at the success of the program, Fresenius Medical Care hopes to expand it into additional clinics in coming years, to help even more patients.

Expansion of the health care system

Fresenius Medical Care has been active in Indonesia since 2000 and is now the market leader for dialysis products in the country. The company has installed over a thousand modern hemodialysis systems there to date as well as dialyzers, water treatment systems and accessories. The company supplies around half of all the clinics. In the Greater Jakarta area, Fresenius Medical Care runs a dialysis center as part of a public-private partnership. The Indonesian government has decided to significantly increase the capacity of its hospitals and to make it easier to build private clinics. Dialysis patients are also set to benefit from this. The number of patients being treated is already rising sharply each year.
In view of this situation, a major task for Fresenius Medical Care is training clinic staff to handle dialysis technology. The company‘s employees are helping to promote the expansion of the health care system in Indonesia – even in remote parts of the island nation.

Main site for dialyzer production

At the St. Wendel, Saarland, facility in Germany Fresenius Medical Care develops and manufactures life-saving products for the treatment of patients with chronic kidney failure. These include dialyzers (artificial kidneys) and systems for peritoneal dialysis (dialysis via the peritoneum). St. Wendel is Fresenius' first – and at the same time the most important – factory for dialyzer production. Large-scale production of the first polysulfone dialyzers started in 1985 at this factory, which has belonged to the company since the mid-1970s. Artificial kidneys made from this material are especially effective in removing metabolic waste products from the blood of patients. Altogether about 2,000 employees work at this location including approximately 150 engineers and scientists.

A modular hospital concept

Fresenius Vamed has developed an innovative modular hospital concept for rural areas in developing and emerging countries. In Africa, VAMED has been working with several governments for many years to address the top priority of nationwide access to basic health care. This requires a network of complementary facilities – large hospitals in the cities and polyclinics dispersed throughout the countryside. VAMED’s modular hospital concept is like using building blocks. The size of hospitals and their equipment can be individually adapted using various standard modules. Construction and equipping of these facilities becomes faster and simpler. And – crucially – makes them much cheaper.

Dialysis in the Australian outback

For Aborigines, the risk of developing chronic kidney disease is 15 to 30 times higher than for other Australians. Aborigine dialysis patients must often live in faraway towns to receive regular treatment, so the “Purple Truck” was started to make it possible for them to spend more time in their home villages. This mobile dialysis service can be on the road for several weeks at a time, bringing dialysis care to patients in a dozen remote Western Desert communities. The Purple Truck contains a complete dialysis station supplied and set up by Fresenius Medical Care. The company also provided the technical know-how to make the equipment robust enough to stand up to long journeys on the unpaved, corrugated roads of the Australian Outback.
