Satellite Healthcare, an organization based out of San Jose California specializing in the treatment of patients with Chronic Kidney Disease, teamed with Fleming Architects to design and construct two In-Center Dialysis Clinics as well as a WellBound clinic in the Memphis area. The Chickasaw Gardens location is the first ground up facility in Memphis, and includes not only the In-Center Dialysis Clinic, but also Satellite’s regional offices in the building’s tenant space. The Chickasaw Gardens clinic houses patient care and treatment areas, exam rooms, a conference room, and staff support areas. The design of the building exterior was intended to be innovative, but relate to the materials and details of the adjacent Memphis Public Library, and the interior finishes and furniture were based off of Satellite Healthcare’s corporate standards. The other In-Center Dialysis Clinic, Satellite South Germantown, was a tenant infill project that operates identically to and includes the same spaces as the Chickasaw Gardens location.
Founded in 1974, Satellite Healthcare was one of the nation's first not- for-profit providers of dialysis services and kidney disease care.
