Satellite Healthcare, one of the nation's first and leading not-for-profit providers of kidney dialysis services and a major sponsor of kidney research, is pleased to announce the opening of Satellite Healthcare Rohnert Park. The new location will be celebrated with an open house on Thursday, October 17.

Satellite Healthcare has more than 40 in-center locations and 18 home dialysis centers nationwide, servicing more than 5,500 patients coast-to-coast.
