DaVita is the dialysis division of DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc., a Fortune 500® company that, through its operating divisions, provides a variety of health care services to patient populations throughout the United States and abroad. A leading provider of kidney care in the United States, DaVita delivers dialysis services to patients with chronic kidney failure and end stage renal disease. DaVita strives to improve patients' quality of life by innovating clinical care, and by offering integrated treatment plans, personalized care teams and convenient health-management services.

As of Dec. 31, 2013, DaVita operated or provided administrative services at 2,074 outpatient dialysis centers located in the United States serving approximately 163,000 patients. The company also operated 73 outpatient dialysis centers located in ten countries outside the United States. DaVita supports numerous programs dedicated to creating positive, sustainable change in communities around the world.
DaVita of Excelsior Springs opened its doors to our first patient in December 2013. We currently are treating 8 in-center patients and 2 home dialysis patients. The facility can accommodate 12 in-center patients per shift. We also offer home dialysis for our patients. Home dialysis nurses can train and teach patients how to do their own dialysis at home, using new modern dialysis machines like the NxStage. This is great for patients who can benefit by still working as they can fit it in with their schedule rather than sit in a clinic three times a week.
