EL SEGUNDO, Calif., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- DaVita Inc., a leading provider of kidney care services for those diagnosed with chronic kidney disease and failure (CKD), today announced that the company's internal publication, DaVita Magazine: Stories from the Village, received two prestigious 2008 Hermes Creative Awards from the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals (AMCP).


The twice-yearly publication featuring stories about DaVita(R) teammates (employees) [and dialysis patients] making a difference in their communities, their families and one another competed against more than 4,000 entries to win both a Gold and Platinum award in the Publications/Magazine and Writing/Publications Overall categories, respectively.

"Everyday, teammates across the country are going the extra mile to provide a high level of quality care for our patients, while still finding time to support our many community programs designed to enrich all of our lives," said Bill Shannon, DaVita Chief Wisdom Officer. "By sharing these stories through DaVita Magazine we are able to both inspire and recognize DaVita's ongoing commitment to helping patients live the fullest, healthiest lives possible while serving as a role model for American health care."

"I'm thrilled that I can share this recognition with our company -- our Village, as we call it," said Blaise Tracy, Manager of DaVita Village Communications. "Still, with or without an award, I am proud of everyone involved in the development and production of DaVita Magazine. It is written by our teammates -- for our teammates.
