"We are proud that DaVita Labs has decided to expand here in Florida. These 100 new jobs in the area means more Floridians will be able to provide for their families," said Florida Governor Rick Scott. "Together we are creating an opportunity economy where companies can expand and create more jobs for Florida families."
DaVita Labs performs more than 47 million laboratory tests each year and employs more than 500 teammates between Ft. Lauderdale and DeLand – a number that has grown by nearly 15 percent since the beginning of 2012. As part of this expansion, DaVita Labs will build a new 65,000-square-foot facility, with the opportunity for expansion to accommodate potential future growth. The construction is set to begin in mid-2014 with target completion date of early-to-mid 2015.
"At DaVita Labs we are dedicated not only to our patients and our teammates, but also to the communities we serve and live in," said DaVita Labs General Manager Jason Cline. "This expansion demonstrates our steadfast commitment to the City of DeLand and all of Volusia County, which has been an attractive location for recruiting and retaining teammates."
DaVita Labs currently has 137,000 square feet dedicated to its state-of-the-art clinical diagnostic laboratories between its two locations in Ft. Lauderdale and DeLand. The laboratories feature the latest in renal-specific methodology and technology for delivering quality test results. The DaVita Labs clinical laboratory team is led by experienced scientists and pathologists, and receives formal guidance from top nephrologists in the industry.
