Our History

For five decades, RenalCare Associates' team of nationally recognized nephrologists and transplant specialists have provided personalized and comprehensive kidney care, utilizing advanced treatment options tailored to your specific needs.


Established in 1975

Established in 1975, Drs. Robert A. Pflederer and R. Kent Bryan co-founded RenalCare Associates to deliver exceptional care for patients with kidney disease and related conditions. They also offered consultations with other physicians to help them gain a deeper understanding of our nephrology care services. Even in these early days of dialysis, our focus was on enabling patients to do self-care at home and live independent, happy lives.

Team Grows

Over the years, the group has grown with additional board certified nephrologists, transplant surgeons, and family nurse practitioners encompassing specialty in kidney disease, home dialysis, hypertension, dialysis access, and general surgery to truly provide comprehensive care to our patients

Hypertension Program

RenalCare established a focus on the treatment of patients with complex and resistant hypertension utilizing the expertise of nephrologists with American Heart Association certification in Hypertension management. 

Expand Outreach

For added convenience and with a growing number of people with chronic kidney disease we opened multiple full-time locations and several satellite locations throughout Illinois.  We also opened a Renal Intervention Center in Morton in affiliation with OSF Saint Francis and Heartland Home Healthcare, Inc.
