Fresenius Medical Care enters into contract with public authorities

Fresenius Medical Care, a provider of dialysis products and services, has entered into a cooperation agreement with the public health authorities in the Murcia region of Spain for the comprehensive dialysis care and performance-oriented reimbursement model.

Under the agreement, Fresenius Medical Care will provide dialysis therapy to approximately 200 renal patients in the region and the contract will be effective from mid-2011.

The company currently provides dialysis treatment and related products to patients in the region of Murcia on a ‘fee-for-service’ basis.

Fresenius Medical Care chief executive officer for Europe, Latin America, Middle East and Africa as well as global chief strategist Emanuele Gatti said as a vertically integrated dialysis company with experience, they are the right partner for successful, long-term cooperation with public health authorities such as those in Murcia and other payors.

"Together we can make a lasting improvement in the quality of dialysis patients’ lives while helping ease the current strain on budgets by making health care spending more efficient," Gatti said.
