Greeters serve in the Dialysis Centers of Satellite Healthcare, providing a warm smile and swift customer service to our patients and anyone else who comes into our lobbies. The most important service Greeters provide is connecting with patients and then finding the answer to their questions by connecting with staff.

For instance, a patient comes in 15 minutes early and wants to know if their chair is ready. With a volunteer on site, the Clinical Administrative Coordinator can stay at their phone and computer, answering calls and scheduling patients, while the volunteer goes to talk directly with treatment staff to inquire when the chair will be available for the patient. Then, having received an answer from the nurses and techs, the volunteer can settle the patient with an understanding of how long the wait will be, and the feeling of being seen and valued as an individual. Staff can do this without volunteers, but it puts other work on hold. Together, we are a better team, more able to address patient concerns during our busiest times.

Greeters sometimes assist with screening for COVID 19, based on Center need, and are trained to use PPE effectively no matter what their duties.

If you are interested in gaining skills in customer service, are thinking about a career in healthcare or dialysis, or just want to work with a team to assist a kidney patient, this opportunity is for you! Together, we can make life better for those living with kidney disease.

Mission Statement

Our Mission: Making life better for those living with kidney disease. Our Values: Compassion, Trust, Quality, Teamwork, and Innovation.

Description

Satellite: A simple idea that changed the way people received treatment.

In the 1960s and early 1970s, people living on dialysis often traveled great distances, three times a week, to a regional medical center for their life-sustaining treatments.

Dr. Norm Coplon, Satellite Healthcare’s founder, believed it was possible to offer individualized dialysis care in a friendlier, more comfortable environment, closer to where people lived.

With just six patients, the first Satellite dialysis center opened March 1 st, 1974. The little center, tucked away in a quiet San José, California neighborhood, was the start of a collaborative, energetic spirit that spurred a series of innovations and opportunities.

Today, Satellite Healthcare has more than 2,800 employees caring for about 8,300 patients. Our 80+ centers are located in five states - California, Texas, Tennessee, New Jersey, and Hawaii.

As we celebrate our past, we look to what the future holds and to the many more lives we’ll be able to touch with high-quality, individualized kidney care.
