TORRANCE, Calif., May 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc. (NYSE: DVA), one of the nation's largest and most innovative health care communities, today announced it will move its HealthCare Partners division California offices from Torrance to a new 185,000 square foot location in El Segundo.
"This is an investment in our teammates at HealthCare Partners," said Kent Thiry, co-chairman and CEO of DaVita HealthCare Partners. "We believe in a truly differentiated work environment, and this new workspace reflects that mindset."
