One for All,

and All for One

In a community, citizens share each other's triumphs and struggles. Whether by helping a teammate's child through school, rewarding teammates' healthy choices, or being a safety net in times of crisis, DaVita invests in improving the lives of its more than 50,000 teammates and their families.

Together, We're Stronger

Help in Times of Crisis

Help in Times of Crisis

The DaVita Village Network is a way for teammates to help each other during times of crisis, such as a natural disaster, accident or illness. Teammates contribute financial aid to others voluntarily through payroll deductions, and DaVita intends to match every dollar donated with a dollar taken from company profits, up to $250,000 per year.

Support for Our Troops

Support for Our Troops

Each year, we honor our more than 1,800 military veteran teammates in our annual Veteran’s Day Celebrations all across the country. We also hand out Veteran’s Appreciation Pins to teammates, spouses and patients who have served in the Armed Forces and write thank-you notes to active-duty service men and women worldwide.

Promoting Healthy Lifestyles

Dedicated to creating and sustaining a culture of health awareness and improvement among teammates and their families, our Village Vitality program offers teammates multiple tools for making healthy choices:

  • Free biometric screenings at work sites
  • Stress-management courses
  • Tobacco-use cessation programs
  • Challenges such as Match the Mayor, a six-week program in which teammates try to match Chairman and CEO Kent Thiry in exercise minutes logged

The We Are Well award is presented to teammates who have made an outstanding commitment to achieving their health goals. Winners are selected based on:

  • Committing deeply to achieving better health
  • Fulfilling personal goals
  • Overcoming challenging health or fitness obstacles
  • Inspiring others to pursue health and fitness

Through our Village Vitality program, teammates who share a compelling story about doing the right thing for their health have the opportunity to earn free health insurance.
