How We Respond to Disasters
Our comprehensive approach to disasters ensures dialysis patients receive the life-sustaining care they need and our employees are safe and supported.
Patients can contact our 24-hour toll-free Patient Emergency Line at 800-626-1297.
Our coordinated disaster response team arrived the day after Hurricane Michael struck Panama City, Fla., ensuring that every in-center or at-home dialysis patient in the impacted area, whether a Fresenius Medical Care patient or not, could continue receiving life-sustaining treatment.
We brought in necessary people and supplies to Puerto Rico to serve the needs of our employees and patients, including more than one hundred employee relief volunteers from operations staff to nurses.
In the wake of Hurricane Maria, Miguel Neris, Fresenius Medical Care North America clinical manager in Miami, Fla., traveled to Puerto Rico to help provide relief to local staff. For Miguel it was a homecoming.
After flooding ravaged Houston, we partnered with a Duck Boat (amphibious vehicle) company in Mobile, Ala., to transport flood-stranded patients to clinics for life-sustaining dialysis treatments.
We were able to provide life-sustaining treatments to more than seven thousand displaced patients after Hurricane Katrina, including more than one thousand non-Fresenius Kidney Care patients.
Fresenius Medical Care went above and beyond for its patients and employees during an unprecedented 2017 disaster season.
