Corporate Citizenship

Care with a capital C

Having the word “Care” in your name is a promise and at the same time a responsibility to truly look after patients and people around the world.

For Fresenius Medical Care, corporate citizenship means being an accountable member of society and caring for people in need. We are committed to continuously engaging with communities around our locations and providing them with assistance and advice, with a particular focus on three areas closely related to our company purpose.

Empowerment and education

Since effective health care revolves around carrying out research, innovating, and then sharing the insights we gain, our work is focused on empowerment and education to advance scientific knowledge. We reach out to a broad audience, from children to patients and their families. Our goal is to inform people about kidney health and prevention as well as to accompany patients with renal disease on their life journey.

Regional and local activities

Secondly, we engage in regional and local activities to improve the quality of and access to care for patients. For example, the Fresenius Medical Care Foundation works to find better ways to help patients who need a donor organ and aims to educate the public about the importance of kidney transplantation. Raising awareness among potential kidney donors is one crucial way to save more lives.

Ongoing support

Third, we also provide ongoing support to building sound communities where our dialysis centers are located and caregivers work, tailored to local needs and specific socioeconomic conditions.

This broad approach to care encompasses numerous activities company-wide. Our 2022 Corporate Citizenship Survey reported over 160 projects, touching the lives of more than 115,000 people in Europe, the U.S., Asia and South America.
