The center is located at 704 Belle Terre Blvd. in LaPlace and is the first in St. John.

At Fresenius Kidney Care, the mission is to "passionately" help those with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end stage renal disease (ESRD) to lead fuller, more active and vibrant lives. Based on information provided, Fresenius is the world's the largest provider of dialysis products and services, and help nearly 200,000 people improve their lives every day around the country.

The dialysis center also provides educational support for people living with CKD, including the "KidneyCare:365" class. This free program helps those affected learn about kidney health, eating well, thriving with CKD, and treatment choices.

"Our goal at Fresenius Kidney Care-LaPlace is to deliver superior care that improves the quality of life of every patient, every day, setting the standard by which others in the healthcare industry are judged," said Renada Taylor, BSN, RN.
