Supporting Each Other - header Read the 2015 Report

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 64,000 teammates and their families.

Together, We're Stronger

Helping 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 military veteran patients, teammates and physicians with our annual Veterans Day celebrations across the country. As a token of our appreciation for their loyal service to our country, we give our veterans a lapel pin in honor of Veterans Day. Centers and business offices also have the ongoing opportunity to Adopt A Troop by providing them with care packages and letters of encouragement during deployment overseas.

Promoting Healthy Lifestyles

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:

  • Financial incentives (up to $800 each for teammates and their spouse/domestic partner)
  • Chronic disease management and coaching
  • Wellness Champions
  • Strong culture of wellness
  • Challenges, competitions and campaigns such as Match the Mayor, a six-week program in which teammates try to match Chairman and CEO Kent Thiry and Kidney Care CEO Javier Rodriguez in adding a variety of fruits and vegetables to their daily meals

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.
