FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 11, 2013 
Gov. Scott: DaVita Rx Expansion to Create 100 Jobs 
in Orange County  
TALLAHASSEE, FLA. – Today, Governor Scott announced that DaVita Rx, LLC, a 
full-service pharmacy specializing in renal care, will create up to 100 jobs 
during the next two years and make a $8.75 million capital investment as part 
of a business expansion in Orange County.   
Governor Scott said, “Creating jobs for Florida families is my top priority, 
and the announcement of 100 jobs for the Orange County area means more families 
will have the opportunity to live the American Dream. As we continue to support 
Florida’s growing economy and improving housing market, companies likes DaVita 
Rx will continue to find great opportunities in the Sunshine State. While 
Florida’s private sector has created more than 200,000 jobs in two years, we 
know our work isn’t done, and we’ll continue working hard to grow jobs and 
opportunities for Florida families.”  
“The Orlando metro area has been an excellent partner in our mission of 
improving pharmacy care for the chronically ill,” said DaVita Rx President, 
Josh Golomb.  “With more than 20 million Americans struggling with kidney 
disease, our anticipated pharmacy expansion in Orlando will allow DaVita Rx to 
help more patients better manage their medications and improve their clinical 
outcomes.” 
The State of Florida, Orange County, Enterprise Florida and the Metro Orlando 
EDC collaborated in this project. 
“We are pleased to add DaVita Rx to Orange County’s roster of life science 
companies,” said Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs. 
“We look forward to DaVita Rx’s continued presence and success in the Orlando 
region, which adds to the region’s long term Life Science sector viability,” 
said Rick Weddle, President and CEO of the Metro Orlando EDC. 
DaVita Rx, LLC, was approved for a $300,000 Qualified Target Industry tax 
refund from the state and Orange County, which is paid after job goals and 
contract requirements are met.
