“This is a major milestone for DaVita,” said Dennis Kogod, chief operating officer of DaVita HealthCare Partners. “In the United States and nine other countries worldwide, we’ve focused on caring for our patients, our teammates and our communities. We’re proud to now include Latin America in this record of excellence and bring Esensa S.A.S. into the DaVita Village.”
The new joint venture encompasses seven clinics treating nearly 1,500 patients in Bogota, Cali, Medellin and Barranquilla. Over the coming years, DaVita plans to expand services in these cities and in other cities of Colombia through this venture. The focus of the expansion will be on providing kidney disease patients the quality of care and service that has long been one of Esensa’s distinctive characteristics.
