Fresenius Medical Care has acquired the company Ciame Ltda, a leading distributor in Uruguay, which has been commercializing the company’s product portfolio to a large number of patients with chronic kidney disease for more than 18 years.

With this acquisition, Fresenius Medical Care aims to introduce new technologies and knowledge to the Uruguayan market, expand the local distribution of its products and thus make the best therapies available to more patients with kidney disease throughout the region.

The Company, led by Rice Powell, Helen Giza and Olaf Schermeier also offers clinical laboratory testing and diagnostic testing services and provides home infusion, respiratory therapy, ultrasound, and echo-cardiography.
