Physician Partnership Opportunities

As a physician, you should consider partnership or acquisition opportunities with DaVita, an organization focused on improving patient care and achieving operational and management excellence.

DaVita prides itself on being the "Partner of Choice" and is the most experienced cooperation partner in the industry, with more jointly owned dialysis centers than all other dialysis providers combined. This is primarily due to our unique focus on our physician teammates and partners, our integrated clinical and business systems and the benefits of DaVita's operational and management programs.

Cooperation agreements align the interests of DaVita and physicians to create world-class dialysis centers. In working with DaVita, physicians share in the risks, rewards and responsibilities of being an owner of a dialysis center. Partners also have a responsibility to ensure a long-term commitment to quality dialysis services in the area. DaVita seeks to identify partners that have a commitment to creating an outstanding operation, the capability to help do so, and a willingness to build awareness of the center.

DaVita has teammates who have extensive transaction experience and are capable of smoothly facilitating any size or type of transaction, including full or partial acquisitions.

Joint Ventures

DaVita works with our joint venture (JV) physicians to create world-class dialysis centers together. As a JV partner, you'll have the opportunity to experience the business and clinical operations of a dialysis center as you join a team with more than a decade of improved clinical outcomes.*

Experience leadership on a local level and explore the benefits of a joint venture partnership with DaVita. These benefits include the ability to share in the risks, rewards and responsibilities of operating a dialysis center. The partners of a JV participate in DaVita’s award-winning teammate development and retention and have access to industry-leading clinical initiatives and research that help drive improved outcomes. Partners also work to ensure a long-term commitment to quality dialysis services in the area.

JVs are typically structured as Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) and are governed by an Operating Agreement and Management Services Agreement.

It is important to note that the business purpose of a dialysis JV is to identify a partner with a commitment to creating an outstanding operation, the capability to help do so and the resources to drive growth for the center.


DaVita is interested in partnering with strong clinicians. For physicians who are ready to recapitalize and expand, spin-off non-core businesses or find an investment strategy that will allow them to liquidate tied-up capital, DaVita has a variety of options for consideration and discussion.

DaVita’s fully staffed Business Development group is a comprehensive, knowledgeable and diverse team of individuals, with experience in the business of dialysis. The Business Development group has extensive experience in transaction work and is capable of smoothly facilitating any size or type of transaction. Some examples of such transaction types include:

  • Acquisitions
  • Partial Acquisitions and Joint Ventures
  • Multi-Faceted Strategic Partnerships

Throughout the process of any transaction with DaVita, you can expect consistent communication and access to Corporate Development group representatives, so you will not be without a resource if a question or issue comes to mind. Subject to the interaction and recommended review by the practice and their counsel, the Corporate Development group facilitates the transaction process from start to finish, including but not limited to the following parts of the process:

  • Data analytics and valuation/appraisal process
  • Due diligence process management
  • Transaction structuring, deal terms, and drafting of definitive documents
