Kidney Care Community
DaVita Kidney Care has opened a 150,000-square-foot campus for DaVita Labs, its diagnostic laboratory that serves DaVita dialysis clinics and their patients. The campus marks an expansion of DaVita Labs’ operations in DeLand, Florida and is expected to create 100 new local jobs.
According to a company press release, DaVita Labs performs more than 47 million laboratory tests annually and employs approximately 450 employees in DeLand, where the company has had a presence for more than 2 decades. The campus is home to DaVita’s advanced automation lab, which aims to increase the volume of tests processed daily and provide enhanced test capacity and capabilities.
DaVita Kidney Care, a division of DaVita Inc., has opened a 150,000-square-foot campus for DaVita Labs in DeLand, Florida.
“We’ve brought the lab’s entire operation under one roof,” Kenny Gardner, DaVita group vice president, said in the release. “From right here in DeLand, our team’s work will keep dialysis caregivers across the country informed and equipped to manage our patients’ health.”
The company expects to operate in the space by year end, according to the release.
“We expect our lab to touch an additional one million test tubes annually by 2023,” Gardner said. “Building this campus has enabled us to reimagine the lab and intentionally design a space outfitted for the future.”
