Do more of what you enjoy

For 20 years, DaVita Integrated Kidney Care (DaVita IKC) has provided patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) and their care partners support from a team of nurse practitioners, nurses, care coordinators, physicians and more. DaVita IKC also has a program called VillageHealth, which provides this same support to patients who are in the earlier stages of chronic kidney disease or who do not dialyze with DaVita.

Our goal is to help you focus on what matters most to you — so you can live life to the fullest.

If you are currently participating in a DaVita IKC program and have questions, please call 1-833-IKC-DAVITA. If you participate in a VillageHealth program, please call 1-800-767-0063 (TTY: 711). 

If you are wondering if you are eligible for DaVita IKC or VillageHealth services, please contact your health insurance or talk to your doctor.
