DaVita Labs, a diagnostic laboratory that serves dialysis organizations and physician practices is expanding its laboratory operations in DeLand to meet future employee growth. DaVita, a division of DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc. and a provider of kidney services will create 100 new jobs with this project, according to an April 21 release by the Office of Governor Rick Scott.
In the release, Governor Rick Scott was quoted as saying, “This expansion will create 100 new jobs, which is important to families in Deland. By cutting taxes and empowering job creators, Florida’s statewide unemployment rate has been below the national unemployment rate since August 2013, and 540, 700 private-sector jobs have been added since December 2010,” said Scott.
“This is good news. Healthcare jobs are usually good jobs and this will be good for the community,” said George Parsons.
“I hope we see more healthcare jobs and more high level science jobs,” said Regina Goodrich.
The Florida unemployment has been going down. And there has been an increase in high paying healthcare jobs.
