DaVita® and HealthCare Partners® have joined forces to become one of the nation's largest and most innovative healthcare communities. The merged entity, DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc., leverages a shared passion for and commitment to clinical excellence and improving patients' health and quality of life.
As an operating division of DaVita HealthCare PartnersSM, DaVita will remain focused on setting worldwide standards for clinical, social and operational practices in kidney care. From raising awareness of the silent epidemic that is chronic kidney disease to providing industry-leading, no-cost diet- and health-management resources to people diagnosed with it, DaVita will continue its pursuit to keep people off dialysis as long as possible—and to improve access to treatment and quality of life for those who do need dialysis.
HealthCare Partners, the country's largest operator of medical groups and physician networks, will continue to provide integrated care management as an operating division of DaVita HealthCare Partners, focusing on delivering outstanding healthcare across a broad range of services. HealthCare Partners works with its patients to help them live life to the fullest and strives to lead the transformation of the national healthcare delivery system to ensure quality, accessible and affordable care for all.
