Company Updates

  • Congrats to our mayor, Kent Thiry, for being named one of the Best-Performing CEO's in the world by the Harvard Business Review! This recognition speaks to the work of our 75k teammates all over the world who care for each other, our patients, and our world each day. One for All!

    The Best-Performing CEOs in the World 2017

    Executive Summary More than 15 years ago Jim Collins, the author of the management best seller Good to Great, introduced the flywheel as a metaphor for the enduring power of strong business leadership. A company achieves excellence, he wrote, by "relentlessly pushing a giant heavy flywheel in one direction, turn upon turn, building momentum until a point of breakthrough."

  • “DaVita believes in improving the lives of our teammates by building a culture of personal development and advancement. This is why all of our teammates are eligible for education assistance and scholarship programs. CNBC recently recognized DaVita as one of “10 companies that will help pay your tuition.”

    On average, in-state students attending a public four-year university pay $20,090 per year in tuition, fees and room and board, according to College Board. For out-of-state students, the cost is even higher at $34,220.

DaVita – Why Work For Us?

The DaVita® Village has grown to more than 70,000 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.

With over 3,000 dialysis centers and 15 offices across the U.S. we’re likely near you! Check us out below.

70,000 career stories and counting. What will yours be?

Our Vision: 
To Build the Greatest Healthcare Community the World has Ever Seen.
Our Mission: 
To be the Provider, Partner and Employer of Choice.

Our Core Values: 

Our Core Values- all seven of them- provide us with the set of guidelines to help us fulfill our Mission and Vision. See Our Core Values below.  We have an unwritten, but spoken eighth core value we call “GSD” which means Getting Stuff Done.

Service Excellence
Serving Others--our reason for existing. We continually seek to understand the needs of those who depend on us (our patients, doctors, and our fellow team members) and then to exceed their expectations.

We say what we believe, and we do what we say. We are trusted because we are trustworthy. In our personal, team, and organizational values, we strive for alignment in what we say and do.

One for All, and All for One!  We work together, sharing a common purpose, a common culture and common goals.  We genuinely care for and support, not only those to whom we provide care, but those with whom we work shoulder-to-shoulder. We work together to pursue achieving our Mission.

Continuous Improvement
We never stand still; we are never satisfied. Individually, and as teams, we constantly look at what we do, and ask, “How can we do this better?” Then, we use a systematic approach to take action.

We don’t say, “It’s not my fault,” or “It’s not my job.” We take responsibility for meeting our commitments- our personal ones as well as those of the entire organization. We take ownership of the results.

We make a difference. We feel rewarded- personally and as a team- because what we do in our jobs is consistent with our goals and dreams. We believe “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” (Mahatma Gandhi). And, when you are the change, that’s fulfilling!

We enjoy what we do. We know kidney dialysis is hard work; but even hard work can be fun. We take our jobs seriously, but we feel a fun environment delivers better care to our patients while creating a better work environment for our teammates. We strive for excellence and we have fun.

    I have been working at DaVita full-time


    DaVita does invest in their teammates and I've had more training and development than any organization. Their tuition reimbursement and scholarship program is great as well as the free internal training's they offer. You'll work with a lot of people who are passionate about the well-being of their teammates and improving healthcare. With that said, there are a lot of metrics to focus on and the workload can be really high. Don't expect to coast in this organization.


    Compensation isn't leading but there are a lot of other amazing perks and other benefits that make up for this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work on getting input from teammates on what improvements can be made and acting on their input.

    Easy Interview


    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at DaVita.


    Applied online, recruiter emailed me and set up a phone interview with me. After the phone interview she then set me up for a panel interview which consisted of 3 FA's. The whole process went really well.

    Interview Questions

    • It was a lot of behavioral based questions.

      Ex: tell me about a time where you were in competition with a co worker.

      Tell me about a time where you had to take on more responsibility than what was in your job description   Answer Question


    I didn't negotiate because I had no experience but the starting pay was great for me.
