DaVita Kidney Care is committed to elevating the health and quality of life for patients around the world. In 2015, we opened the first-ever vascular access center in Saudi Arabia, and joined the Malaysian Health Tourism Council, among other key milestones.

Treating our patients like family

Treating Our Patients Like Family

Making our patients feel like members of our community helps improve their healthcare experience and, we hope, their quality of life. To foster a friendly and supportive environment in our centers, our teammates created programs that honor the unique individuals we serve. More than 1,000 centers have each crafted an elaborate Wall of Fame, which showcases patients’ and teammates’ pictures and fun facts to help them get to know each other better, have some fun and show their creativity.

To comfort the families of critically ill and deceased patients, the DaVita Circle of Life program helps address life-planning and end-of-life issues, and memorializes patients who have passed locally and nationally. The program also celebrates babies that are born into the DaVita Village.
