Memphis Gets Fourth Satellite Dialysis Center
Satellite Healthcare is preparing to open its fourth Memphis dialysis center, Satellite Healthcare Chickasaw Gardens, at 2980 Poplar Ave.
The new center – built in partnership with University Clinical Health, a not-for-profit provider of kidney diagnostic and treatment services – joins the company’s other Memphis locations: Satellite Healthcare Pace Road, Satellite Healthcare South Germantown and Satellite Healthcare Poplar Avenue.
Satellite, a not-for-profit and the sixth-largest provider of patient-centered dialysis and kidney disease services, joined forces with University Clinical Health to help address a growing need for dialysis services in Memphis because of its predominately African-American population, a demographic disproportionately affected by chronic kidney disease.
Satellite Healthcare Chickasaw Gardens will celebrate with a grand opening and kidney health resource fair Thursday, March 24, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The community is invited to tour the center, check their blood pressure, and learn more about the various kidney health services available to them and their loved ones. For more information about the grand opening, call 901-531-8850 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

New Mobile Stroke Unit Introduced in Memphis
The University of Tennessee Health Science Center College of Medicine this week introduced a mobile stroke unit.
The device can conduct and produce advance quality imaging for stroke diagnosis and noninvasive CT-angiography with a Siemens SOMATOM Scope CT scanner. The college said it’s the first time CT capabilities of this magnitude have been available in a mobile setting, and that it creates the ability to diagnose and launch treatment, including tissue plasminogen activator treatment and the potent blood pressure drug nicardipine, within the critical first-hour timeframe.
The sophistication of the college’s new mobile stroke unit – weighing in at more than 14 tons – also means a patient will be prepped to go straight to the catheterization laboratory, Neuro Intensive Care Unit or Hospital Stroke Unit, bypassing the stop in the emergency department entirely.
The UT Mobile Stroke Unit will be operated by University Clinical Health, a subsidiary of the UT College of Medicine’s faculty practice plan. The unit is funded through a public-private collaboration for which more than $3 million has been raised, which will enable operation for up to three years.
The unit will operate 12 hours a day, one week on and one week off, beginning in late April.
