Chronic kidney disease is a significant public health issue. Nationwide, roughly 37 million Americans live with chronic kidney disease. Each year, more than 130,000 Americans receive a diagnosis of kidney failure or end-stage renal disease, an irreversible condition that can be fatal.

DaVita is one of the largest providers of kidney care, and its services range from slowing the progression of kidney disease to supporting transplantation.
