DENVER (Business Wire) -- DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc. (NYSE: DVA) today announced that the company will honor more than 4,000 DaVita® teammates and HealthCare Partners® leaders from around the world at its inaugural DaVita HealthCare Partners® “Villagewide” meeting in downtown Denver.

Villagewide will celebrate, in part, DaVita's move to the Mile High City in 2010, completion of its new headquarters building and merger with HealthCare Partners Holdings, LLC, in 2012. From April 24 to 27, DaVita HealthCare Partners will recognize teammates for their outstanding care for patients, each other and the world.

Thousands of teammates from three continents will fly into Denver International Airport and make a significant economic impact on Denver hotels, restaurants and retail stores. Teammates will travel from the Netherlands, India, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, China, Singapore, Poland and across the U.S.

The Villagewide meeting by the numbers:

  • About 4,000 teammates
  • 1,288 cities
  • 49 states
  • Nine countries
  • 14 hotels
  • 2,852 hotel rooms
  • More than 12,000 hotel room nights

At the end of the week, teammates will also participate in one of DaVita HealthCare Partners' largest community service projects (known internally as Village Service Days) ever.

“This week is dedicated to our front line teammates,” said Kent Thiry, chairman and CEO of DaVita HealthCare Partners. “It's where we pause to review our accomplishments, look to the future as we expand internationally as well as domestically with our HealthCare Partners family, and above all recognize those who truly role model our Mission and Values.”

On Saturday, April 27, more than 3,000 teammates will give their time to make a positive difference in the area of global health. The specifics of the volunteer project will not be revealed to teammates until that morning.
