Employees of DaVita HealthCare Partners have a tough job, says Director Danny Shapiro: treating kidney patients with dialysis.
So execs at the San Jose, Calif., practice “believe nurturing each other better equips us to nurture our patients,” Shapiro says.
That nurturing involvesdevelopment programs, open communication, scholarships and financial assistance to employees in need.
A “Trilogy of Care—Caring for Our Patients, Caring for Each Other and Caring for Our World”— drives a commitment to community engagement, Shapiro says.
Last year, more than 100 employees walked in or donated to local National Kidney Foundation walks, and nationally, through the DaVita Way of Giving campaign, workers donated $1.2 million to more than 760 nonprofit organizations across the U.S.
