EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- DaVita Inc. (NYSE: DVA), a leading provider of kidney care services in the United States, is caring for thousands of dialysis patients, despite the loss of power to millions of people in the Houston area. DaVita's Emergency Response Team had hundreds of teammates supplying the necessary materials and generators to deliver vital dialysis treatment during and after the storm. Nearly all DaVita's fifty-eight centers are up and running, some solely on generator power.
