SACRAMENTO, Calif., Nov. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- DaVita Kidney Care, a leading provider of kidney care services in the United States, issued the following statement:
"We are grateful that Californians voted down Proposition 23, a harmful ballot measure that could have jeopardized access to life-sustaining dialysis care for more than 80,000 patients. It's incredibly frustrating that despite not understanding dialysis or our patients, the labor union, SEIU-UHW, continues its attempt to harm patients in the dialysis community. We remain focused on putting our patients' health and safety first and will continue to oppose misguided policy attacks."
