Top 10 reasons to dialyze with DaVita
Did you know YOU have a choice of where to receive dialysis? Here are 10 reasons why you should choose DaVita as your dialysis company.
1. Healthy results
Your good health is what it’s all about. DaVita patients consistently receive better outcomes than the national average for dialysis adequacy, anemia management and nutritional management. What does this means for you? DaVita offers some of the highest quality care of any dialysis company in the country.
2. DaVita teammates care
You spend a lot of time—and place a lot of trust—with the people who care for you. A kind, supportive health care team can help make your experience more pleasant. At DaVita, you’ll receive personal care and attention from a highly trained team of professionals. Providing service excellence and quality health care for our patients requires a commitment on behalf of everyone at DaVita. DaVita teammates are special to their patients—because they care.
3. Clean, welcoming environment
DaVita offers an inviting, caring and safe environment for you. Enter a DaVita center and you’ll get a friendly “Hello” from a DaVita teammate. You’ll also notice how bright and clean a DaVita center is. We pay attention to details to protect our patients, guests and teammates from infections and injuries. We also take pride in the appearance of our centers. You’ll notice photographs of teammates and patients, plus other festive decorations adorning the walls to create a warm and friendly surrounding. At DaVita, we want you to feel comfortable.
4. Variety of treatment choices: In-center Hemodialysis, Peritoneal Dialysis and At-home Hemodialysis*
DaVita can provide you with information on each type of dialysis treatment to help you make an informed decision. Together, you and your doctor will choose the treatment option that’s right for you. Whichever treatment method you choose, DaVita will strive to deliver the best care, support and treatment outcomes.

5. Convenient treatment scheduling
Convenience is key. Balancing work, family and dialysis can be a challenge. The health care team at your DaVita hemodialysis center will work with you to schedule the most convenient time for your treatments. Allowing you to keep your job and your insurance provides a more normal lifestyle and a financial safety net for you and your family. DaVita centers also have on-site staff to help answer your insurance questions. At DaVita, we respect your time.
6. Education for patients
Knowledge is power. This is especially true when dealing with issues about your health. DaVita wants to help you understand all aspects of your care from day one. Each new patient receives a welcome booklet and orientation video. Your DaVita health care professionals will also provide one-on-one, face-to-face instruction on an ongoing basis. In-center newsletters are available to keep you informed about dialysis and what’s happening in your center. You can also access essential information about chronic kidney disease and dialysis anytime at DaVita.com. At DaVita, we provide the tools to empower you to make better decisions about your health.
7. Your DaVita doctor
DaVita doctors are highly trained and skilled to care for people with kidney disease. (Doctors who specialize in kidney care are called nephrologists.) DaVita provides a network of support for our doctors, so they can focus on providing the best quality care for their patients. Ask your current nephrologist to refer you to a DaVita center for dialysis. If your nephrologist is not a DaVita doctor, simply call us toll free at 1-800-244-0680. We will locate the DaVita center nearest you and pair you with a DaVita doctor.
8. Patient services
At DaVita, we want to cater to your needs. Whether you need to find a center at your vacation destination, need answers regarding your insurance or would like to learn more about kidney disease and dialysis, DaVita can help. DaVita allows access to information and services 24/7 at www.davita.com. Your DaVita dietitian, social worker, nurse, technician and nephrologists offer on-going information and support.
DaVita centers provide conveniences to help pass time while on dialysis. You can watch TV and movies, use your laptop computer or cell phone, or partake in planned activities, such as arts and crafts, bingo and other games. Of course, you can always ask for a blanket and take a nap, too.
9. DaVita values
Each DaVita teammate has promised to uphold the DaVita values. These seven values—Service excellence, Integrity, Teamwork, Continuous improvement, Accountability, Fulfillment and Fun—help us create the DaVita difference. At DaVita, we believe you deserve our full commitment. The name DaVita means “he/she gives life.” Everyday, in all of our clinics, our name reflects our purpose.
