About Satellite Healthcare
Satellite Healthcare is more than simply a dialysis company. Since our founding in 1974, we have become the industry’s leader in personalized quality care: 70% of our centers earn 4- and 5-star ratings from Medicaid and Medicare.gov, far ahead of all other providers. Our success in caring for patients can be attributed to our mission, our not-for-profit structure, and our people. Together, they create a powerfully patient-centered organization.
Our mission is clear: to make life better for people living with kidney disease. Because we are a non-profit, we can pursue that mission with all our resources, united by our passion for patient care. As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, Satellite Research explores new ways to elevate the effectiveness and delivery of dialysis therapy. And Satellite Wellbound is leading the industry in home dialysis because better outcomes and quality of life are our highest priority. We are also substantial contributors to community and philanthropic kidney initiatives.
We are seeking a Home Therapy dialysis nurse to educate and train our patients to perform their own dialysis at home in a clean and safe environment. The Home Therapy RN will advocate for the patients and effectively communicate with other team members. The Home Therapy RN role is an integral part of the Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) to empower our patients and keep them successful at home.
This is a rewarding opportunity to observe the transformation in patient’s lives from being sick and dependent to thriving and living independently while improving clinical outcomes. Rotation of on-call for nights and weekends is required as needed.
Making life better for those with kidney disease is a mission you can embrace fully and passionately. You want to learn about your patients beyond just their time in treatment. You know the value of compassion, commitment and especially collaboration. You believe in continuous improvement as a way of looking at everything. You pursue goals with determination and build long and productive professional relationships.
