About DaVita Culture

DaVita Kidney Care is the dialysis division of DaVita Inc., a Fortune 500® company that, through its operating divisions, provides a variety of health care services to patients around the globe.

As a leading provider of kidney care in the United States, DaVita Kidney Care delivers dialysis services to patients with chronic kidney failure and end stage renal disease.

Derived from the Italian words for "giving life," DaVita has more than 67,000 teammates (employees) and 2,293 dialysis centers globally, working to improve patients’ quality of life by innovating clinical care and offering integrated treatment plans, personalized care teams and convenient health-management services that exemplify the company’s Core Values:

  • Service Excellence: our reason for existing.
  • Integrity: We say what we believe, and we do what we say. We are trusted because we are trustworthy.
  • Team: One for All, and All for One! We work together, sharing a common purpose, a common culture and common goals.
  • Continuous Improvement: We never stand still; we are never satisfied.
  • Accountability: We don't say, "It's not my fault" or "It's not my job." We take responsibility for meeting our commitments — our personal ones as well as those of the entire organization. We take ownership of the results.
  • Fulfillment: We make a difference. We feel rewarded — personally and as a team — because what we do in our jobs is consistent with our goals and dreams.
  • Fun: We enjoy what we do. We know kidney dialysis is hard work; but even hard work can be fun.

The DaVita Way

DaVita consistently differentiates itself from other kidney care companies and surpasses U.S. national averages for clinical outcomes. Our clinical outcomes for dialysis have improved each year for the past 13 years, and we lead in many key quality measurements of dialysis care. Read more about DaVita’s clinical outcomes.

Since DaVita began in 1999, we have developed programs to enrich the lives of our community's members—and in creating programs for our patients and teammates, we realized that goodwill has also spread to our families, into 1,600 local communities and around the world. DaVita is a community first, and a company second. We are a community that just happens to be organized in the form of a company.

As a leading provider of kidney care services in the United States, DaVita aims to build the greatest healthcare community the world has ever seen by accomplishing the following:

  • Improving the quality of life for people diagnosed with chronic kidney disease
  • Innovating and adding value to kidney care
  • Being a role model for global healthcare
  • Sending forth ripples of our community philosophy
