As a leading provider of kidney care, DaVita Kidney Care strives to improve patients' quality of life by innovating clinical care and by offering integrated treatment plans, personalized care teams and convenient health-management services.

DaVita is a community first, and a company second. Since DaVita began in 1999, we have developed programs to enrich the lives of our community members—and in creating programs for our patients and teammates, we send forth ripples of goodwill into thousands of communities around the world. We are a community that just happens to be organized in the form of a company. Community Care, the DaVita vision for social responsibility, lays out our philosophy on the role corporations should play in the world.

Our endeavor in serving Chinese patients started in Jan 2013, when we formed a joint venture based in Taipei, Taiwan. As one of the first international providers in the market, our goal is to help improve healthcare-service delivery in Taiwan by achieving world-class outcomes and offering patient-centered care. We are here to make dialysis available to every patient who needs it and enhance our patients’ quality of life along the way.

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

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