DaVita is expanding in the Dayton area with more than $2 million invested in opening two new dialysis centers.

The publicly traded company, based in Denver, opened new centers this month in Trotwood and Dayton.

There will be 15 people working at the Trotwood location at 5680 Salem Bend Drive and 28 employees at the Dayton location at 2808 Germantown St.

Both dialysis centers are in vacant retail buildings that were renovated into medical centers.

The Dayton center opened in a former Family Dollar, which was also a $1.1 million renovation, according to a building permit.

These centers join about 16 other DaVita locations in the area taking patients with chronic kidney failure.

As of June, DaVita operated or provided administrative services at 2,445 outpatient dialysis centers in the U.S. for about 194,600 patients.
