DENVER, Oct. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- DaVita Kidney Care, a division of DaVita Inc. (NYSE: DVA), a leading provider of kidney care services in the United States, has been recognized for its corporate culture, receiving three coveted awards in the past few months:

  • Cigna Outstanding Culture of Wellbeing award, July 23, 2018

  • Candidate Experience (CandE) Award, Sept. 6, 2018

"We are committed to creating an exceptional experience for each and every one of our teammates and candidates and are proud to be recognized for this effort," said Louis Efron, vice president of teammate experience for DaVita Kidney Care.

The exclusive Cigna Outstanding Culture of Wellbeing award was bestowed upon DaVita Kidney Care for its exceptional commitment to improving teammates' physical and emotional health through its workplace programs. These programs have strong leadership participation and encourage teammates to be the healthiest version of themselves because DaVita believes healthy teammates will deliver even better health care to patients.

For the second year in a row, DaVita Kidney Care was named among the Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles® by the National Business Group on Health. This gold-level award honors DaVita's Village Vitality program, which is designed to improve teammate well-being across the four dimensions of well-being: physical, financial, social and emotional. 

Earlier this year, DaVita Kidney Care teammates came together to help improve the experience candidates have when applying for roles within the health care company. The goal was to cultivate an experience that was reflective of its Mission and Values. As a result of the positive progress made in this area, DaVita's recruiting department received a CandE award based on ratings from its own nursing applicants.
