DaVita® Stories

Training Our Way to Quality Care

For the 14th year in a row, DaVita was recognized by Training Magazine for having one of the best training programs in the country.

“Our emphasis on whole-person learning reflects our belief that who we are and how we show up at work is also who we are at home, in our communities and in the world,” said Dave Hoerman, chief wisdom officer at DaVita. “The goal of our training programs is to transform and enrich the lives of our teammates, ultimately translating to the best care possible for our patients.”

On this year’s list, we ranked No. 37 out of 125, and according to Training Magazine, the rankings are determined by multiple qualitative and quantitative factors. Among those factors are the scope of the programs and the financial investment in employee development.

One of our foundational training and development programs that almost all new teammates participate in is Academy. DaVita created Academy – a two-day, off-site event – as a way to introduce new teammates to our unique history, culture and dedication to whole-person learning.
