In 1974, Norman Coplon, MD, founded a non-profit organization to provide dialysis outside of a hospital setting and closer to patients' homes. This vision led to the growth of a broad array of services that includes dialysis facilities, self-care dialysis training programs, clinical laboratories, and research initiatives. Over the years Satellite has come to stand for independence, innovation and a tradition of high-quality care.

Through its affiliated services, Satellite WellBound, Satellite Dialysis, and Satellite Research, Satellite Healthcare provides unparalleled early patient wellness education, personalized clinical services, and a complete range of dialysis therapy choices. In addition, Satellite Healthcare has a well-recognized, enduring commitment to philanthropy and community service, from funding millions of dollars in research grants to sponsoring kidney programs nationwide.

For more than 40 years, the mission has remained unchanged: Making Life Better For Those Living With Kidney Disease. From the patient chair side to the boardroom, this powerful yet practical principle guides Satellite’s daily clinical work as well as its leadership decisions.
