DaVita Inc., a leading provider of dialysis services for those diagnosed with chronic kidney failure and disease, has opened its newest Lehigh Acres clinic at 5705 Lee Blvd.
DaVita brings the Lehigh Acres community its village of professional care specialists and resources to provide heightened convenience and quality care to those requiring dialysis.
"The name DaVita is an adaptation of an Italian phrase that means 'he or she gives life,' and everyday in every clinic we believe that our name reflects our purpose said James Harrell, facility administrator of DaVita Inc. "With our lineup of outstanding physicians and teammates, we are committed to providing the high level of service to the Fort Myers and Lehigh Acres community and to having a positive impact on the patients and families we touch through our work."
The 33,000 square-foot clinic will provide essential daily dialysis services to members of the community suffering from chronic kidney failure and diseases, officials there said. The clinic is state-of-the-art and has features such as flat screen TVs and the Internet.
The DaVita Gateway clinic has also added jobs to the economy of the region. DaVita employees take pride in helping members of the community in need of dialysis care, which has helped to make DaVita one of Fortune's "Most Admired Companies," officials there said.
As part of DaVita's commitment to supporting public education and the prevention of chronic kidney disease, the local clinic plans to be a leading provider of information services to those with high-risk for chronic kidney disease.
