Last week it was announced that an international provider of kidney care products and services intends to relocate a business support center to Chandler.
This fall, the 40,000-square-foot Fresenius Medical Care North America office near Price and Germann roads is expected to open. According to a press release, it will have room for about 200 employees.
A 170-acre mixed-use business park, the business center at Park Place will provide administrative services to more than 2,400 dialysis centers in the U.S.
“We are excited for the opportunity to expand our presence in Chandler,” CEO Bill Valle said in the release. “We have made a strong commitment in Arizona to support individuals living with kidney failure with the highest quality care.”
According to the company, about 1 in 7 U.S. adults have chronic kidney disease. The company also said that more than 14,500 people in Arizona were living with kidney failure as of 2016.
