Dialysis Center Care Teams

Care Teams

Achieving quality is a team effort. Physicians, when supported by a highly trained clinical care team dedicated to quality and strong values, can better improve clinical outcomes and patient quality of life.

The DaVita Care Team

  • Nurses are dedicated to closely following the treatment plans outlined by nephrologists, overseeing each dialysis treatment to optimize results.
  • Dietitians provide education and support to help patients better maintain a kidney-friendly diet.
  • Social workers actively support patients and their families during and after the transition to dialysis to help enhance their quality of life.
  • Care technicians promote the comfort and safety of patients in the dialysis center, monitoring the patients before, during and after treatment.
  • Insurance specialists help patients navigate their insurance options.
  • Travel planners help ESRD patients find access to dialysis when on trips—both nationally and internationally, at many popular vacation destinations.
  • Facility administrators manage the patient-treatment schedule and all other aspects of a dialysis center’s operations.
  • Emergency services providers respond to emergency situations so patients are accounted for and placed in alternate dialysis centers during natural disasters or severe weather.
  • Call center support specialists help patients find the nearest dialysis center to their home or vacation destination, explain treatment options and more.
