It is critical that we provide an environment for both our teammates and our patients to thrive,” said Javier Rodriguez, CEO of DaVita Inc. “I am confident that Kenny’s track record and proven leadership will take us to the next frontier.”

Gardner has held numerous roles since joining DaVita in 2011 as a regional operations director.
