Making healthcare better is our priority, and we believe medical technology can play an even greater role in improving people’s lives. With challenges facing families and healthcare systems — such as rising costs, aging populations, and the burden of chronic disease — we are using the power of technology to take healthcare Further, Together. Innovation and collaboration are central to who we are. Since the late 1940s, we have been working with others to alleviate pain, restore health, and extend life. Today, we are a medical technology leader, employing more than 84,000 people worldwide, and offering therapies and solutions that enable greater efficiency, access, and value — for healthcare systems, providers, and the people they serve.
