DaVita Rx is a pharmacy specializing in the needs of people on dialysis, offering the convenience of dialysis center delivery service at no additional cost along with personalized care to make sure patients are able to receive and take all the medications they need. The Dallas location is its flagship pharmacy, and along with two other pharmacies, it serves over 13,000 dialysis patients in 33 states.

"I had trouble with pharmacies not having my medication ready when I went to pick it up, or my medication being out of stock, or going and they were closed," says a local dialysis patient who uses DaVita Rx. "With DaVita Rx I get it when I need it and I feel healthier."

On average, dialysis patients are prescribed more than eight medications to treat five co-morbid conditions. Research indicates dialysis patients adhere to the medication regimen prescribed by their doctors at a rate of 50-60%. DaVita Rx pharmacists work with DaVita's clinical teammates to drive medication adherence and improve patient outcomes and provides physicians with clear visibility of their patients' medication adherence. With that partnership in place, adherence rates can be 80% or higher.

DaVita Rx also provides kidney patients with an auto-refill program, flexible payment options, help with insurance and 24/7 toll-free access to DaVita Rx pharmacists.

DaVita Rx's one millionth prescription will be delivered to a dialysis center in Los Angeles, Calif. today by DaVita CEO Kent Thiry.
