DaVita Assumes Ownership of Ministry Dialysis Services
Effective June 1, 2011, DaVita, Inc. from Denver, Colorado has assumed ownership of all outpatient dialysis centers formerly owned by Ministry Health Care. The transfer of ownership comes as a result of lengthy discussion and evaluation of the program.
At Ministry Health Care we believe that transferring ownership to a larger national provider is in the best interest of our patients. DaVita is one of the largest dialysis providers in the country with more than 1,600 outpatient facilities, serving approximately 128,000 patients with more than 34,000 employees.
The name DaVita means “giving life.” Every day, in all DaVita clinics, the name reflects that purpose. Providing quality dialysis care to each one of our patients is a privilege and DaVita patients consistently receive excellent outcomes for dialysis adequacy as well as for vascular access and nutritional management.
We are excited about the opportunity to work with DaVita and are confident that this transition will continue providing high quality dialysis care to our patients in central and northern Wisconsin.
