Learn how DaVita’s world-class clinical leaders are working to improve patient outcomes and quality of life in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

DaVita Kidney Care, a division of DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc. and a leading provider of kidney care services in the United States, strives to improve patients’ quality of life in countries around the world by innovating clinical care and offering integrated treatment plans, personalized care teams and convenient health-management services.

In early 2014, DaVita signed a tender from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health to treat half of the nearly 10,000 patients currently under the ministry’s care. The prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in Saudi Arabia has increased over the past three decades1, and the need for nephrologists committed to high-quality patient care has never been greater.

DaVita is developing a world-class clinical and business operations team to lead the charge in elevating the standard of care for patients with CKD in Saudi Arabia, as well as building and operating dialysis and vascular access centers. Together with the Ministry of Health, we aim to create an environment that provides superior clinical outcomes, patient satisfaction, and teammate engagement.
