DaVita Kidney Care, a division of DaVita HealthCare Partners (DVA) and leading provider of kidney care services, announced a collaboration with Medtronic (MDT) to better understand cardiovascular health in end stage renal disease, ESRD patients.

Wells Fargo downgraded the Hospital group to Market Weight from Overweight saying the Supreme Court's decision to hear the King v. Burwell case as well as the government's reduced expectations for exchange enrollment in 2015 are likely to remain an overhang on the sector through at least the end of June.
