Growing with Our Trilogy of Care

The DaVita® Village has grown to more than 64,000 teammates serving approximately 2 million patients around the world. Through the growth of DaVita Kidney Care, HealthCare Partners (a DaVita Medical Group), Paladina Health and our international kidney care centers, we have kept a sharp focus on our approach to healthcare—providing exceptional care for our patients, supporting the development of our teammates both at work and at home, caring for the communities in which we live and operate around the world, and utilizing sustainable environmental practices.

We define our corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs as our Trilogy of Care—Caring for Our Patients, Caring for Each Other and Caring for Our World. It is what makes us a community first and a company second.
