DaVita Academy is a two-day experience for new and recently hired DaVita(R) teammates and involves skill building, team building, and having lots of fun. An important part of the company's extensive training and education programs, the first 100 sessions of Academy have given nearly 30,000 teammates an opportunity to meet and learn from other DaVita teammates and have a greater understanding of DaVita as a company - and most importantly - as a village. Teammates take personality tests to gain an understanding of the key dynamics of successful teams and how they can play an integral role. They leave DaVita Academy with new ideas to improve their interpersonal skills and their facility and/or department.

"The DaVita Academy is an integral part of the development of each and every one of DaVita's 32,000 teammates, and part of the reason our teammates deliver some of the best clinical outcomes in the industry," said Kent Thiry, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of DaVita. "Before DaVita's story and culture were taught by the top business schools - like Harvard and Stanford - they were taught at the DaVita Academy. Today's 100th Academy is a celebration of the first DaVita Decade and a reminder that our future holds unprecedented possibilities."

DaVita recently was named as the first and only FORTUNE 500(R) company and only healthcare company to make the 2009 WorldBlu List of Most Democratic Workplaces(TM) since its inception in 1999.
