DaVita’s vision is to "Build the Greatest Healthcare Community the World Has Ever Seen." One measure of our continued progress is how our performance is viewed by other organizations. We are humbled and motivated by the accolades we receive from organizations for providing exemplary patient care and positively impacting our patients' quality of life, for fostering a supportive and invigorating place to work and for behaving as responsible and caring corporate citizens.
From implementing new procedures that improve patient safety, to educating patients about the link between diet and lab results, to providing online tools to help patients and caregivers understand and manage kidney disease, DaVita strives to help patients feel their best and continue to live full lives.
DaVita has been on FORTUNE® magazine’s World’s Most Admired CompaniesTM list for eight consecutive years and DaVita Inc. Chairman and CEO Kent Thiry has appeared on Modern Healthcare magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare list consistently since 2007.
Nurturing each other better equips us to nurture our patients. This philosophy inspires our award-winning leadership-development programs, open communication channels, scholarships and financial assistance for teammates in need.
DaVita was the first Fortune 500 and the first healthcare company recognized by WorldBlu's Most Democratic Workplaces. We’ve been on the WorldBlu list since 2008. DaVita has also been recognized by Training magazine's Training Top 125 and Chief Learning Officer magazine's LearningElite.
Additionally, over the years, our teammates have voted DaVita onto several regional lists of top workplaces.
We consider ourselves a community first and a company second. That means that as we grow our business, we strive to support our communities and create effective environmental programs that allow us to operate responsibly.
