Construction was recently completed on Satellite Healthcare West Turlock, a dialysis center that will soon serve up to 100 patients with state-of-the-art innovative care.

The new center, a 9,826 square foot facility located at 2350 Maryann Drive, will be operated by Satellite Healthcare. The sixth largest provider of patient-centered dialysis and kidney disease services, Satellite Healthcare is a leading national not-for-profit that has helped patients for over 40 years. Satellite Healthcare serves more than 6,500 patients across 80 centers and six states.

“The new dialysis center will allow us to further care for patients with kidney disease in Turlock and nearby communities,” said Frank Jesse, vice president of Real Estate and Facilities for Satellite Healthcare.  “We look forward to opening the new center and making a positive impact in the community.”

The new building shell was designed by L Street Architects in Modesto and constructed by San Jose-based Built with Principle, while the interior design was developed by Dallas-based Entos Design and also constructed by Built with Principle.

Ground-breaking care will be offered at the new center, which includes 24 stations and one isolation room. There will be stations for patients in the early stages of dialysis treatment and a private television at each patient station. The center also features a water system with disposal tanks designed to reduce overall water use throughout treatment, energy efficient LED lighting, occupancy sensors in each room and high ceilings throughout.

“We are pleased to design a facility to provide quality treatment for dialysis patients,” said Keith Simmons, project manager at Entos Design. “Our experience working with Satellite has been a rewarding experience and we are excited to contribute to better and more efficient treatment.”

This will be the second dialysis center opened by Satellite Healthcare in Turlock, which already operates a center located at 1729 N. Olive Ave. According to David Grandey of Built with Principle, Satellite Healthcare West Turlock is expected to open January 2017.
