FRANKFURT, Feb 22 (Reuters) - The world's largest kidney dialysis provider Fresenius Medical Care (FMC) said it expected its net income growth to slow to between 7 and 9 percent this year, after a 21 percent jump last year.
Analysts in a Reuters poll had on average forecast an 11 percent rise in net income this year.
FMC, controlled by German healthcare group Fresenius , reported on Wednesday its fourth-quarter net income came in at $388 million, a tad above consensus for $378 million. (Reporting by Maria Sheahan; Editing by Victoria Bryan)
