The remaining 15% ownership interest will be retained by current HomeChoice senior management. This minority interest is subject to annual put and call options beginning 4 years from the date of closing.

It has an experienced management team that will fit well with DaVita's culture and our focus on outstanding clinical outcomes. We have modest initial growth plans, but as we learn the business we will evaluate the possibility for further investment in infusion services," said Kent Thiry, CEO of DaVita.

"HomeChoice is proud and excited to be part of a national healthcare company where the primary focus is to be the leader in patient outcomes. DaVita and HomeChoice are totally aligned in our goal to maintain that clinical leadership," said Mary Ann Cope, founder and President of HomeChoice.
