Fresenius Medical Care AG & Co. KGaA operates as a kidney dialysis company worldwide. The company provides dialysis care services related to the dialysis treatment a patient with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) receives, as well as other health care services. The company describes its other health care services as ‘Care Coordination’. Care Coordination services include pharmacy services, vascular, cardiovascular and endovascular specialty services, non-dialysis laboratory testing services, physician services, hospitalist and intensivist services, health plan services, and urgent care services, which together with dialysis care services represent its health care services. The company also develops and manufactures a range of dialysis machines, systems, and disposable products. The company’s dialysis business is vertically integrated, providing dialysis treatment at its own dialysis clinics and supplying these clinics with a range of products. In addition, the company sells dialysis products to other dialysis service providers. In the U.S., the company also provides inpatient dialysis services and other services under contract to hospitals. In 2014, the company provided 42,744,977 million dialysis treatments. Health Care Services – Dialysis Care Dialysis Services The company provides dialysis treatment and related laboratory and diagnostic services through its network of 3,361 outpatient dialysis clinics, 2,162 of which are in the North America segment (including Mexico) and 1,199 of which are in approximately 45 countries outside of North America. At the company’s clinics, it provides hemodialysis treatments at individual stations through the use of dialysis machines and disposable products. A nurse attaches the necessary tubing to the patient and the dialysis machine and monitors the dialysis equipment and the patient's vital signs. As part of the dialysis therapy, the company provides various services to ESRD patients at its dialysis clinics in the U.S. These services include administering erythropoietin stimulating agents (ESAs), synthetic engineered hormones that stimulate the production of red blood cells. ESAs are used to treat anemia, a medical complication that ESRD patients frequently experience. The company administers ESAs to majority of its patients in the U.S. The company’s clinics also offer services for home dialysis patients, the majority of whom receive peritoneal dialysis treatment. For those patients, it provides materials, training and patient support services, including clinical monitoring, follow-up assistance and arranging for delivery of the supplies to the patient's residence. The company also provides dialysis services under contract to hospitals in the U.S. on an ‘as needed’ basis for hospitalized ESRD patients and for patients suffering from acute kidney failure. Acute kidney failure could result from trauma or similar causes, and requires dialysis until the patient's kidneys recover their normal function. The company services these patients either at their bedside, using portable dialysis equipment, or at the hospital's dialysis site. Other Health Care Services Laboratory Services The company, through Spectra Laboratories (Spectra) and Shiel Laboratories (Shiel), provides full service laboratories that support the needs of its patients in the U.S. and also provides laboratory testing for others in the U.S. Spectra provides blood, urine and other bodily fluid testing services to determine the appropriate individual dialysis therapy for a patient and to assist physicians in determining whether a dialysis patient's therapy regimen, diet and medicines remain optimal. Shiel expands the company’s laboratory services to include general testing, clinical anatomic pathology, and molecular testing for health care providers in the New York region. Pharmacy Services The company offers pharmacy services, primarily in the U.S. These services include delivering renal medications and supplies to the homes of patients or to their dialysis clinic directly from renal pharmacists who are specially trained in treating and counseling patients living with kidney di
