Our Mission drives us to make our products available to the people who need them — whoever and wherever they are. Medtronic develops healthcare solutions to address global healthcare challenges, reaching people around the globe in ways that reflect market needs and priorities. Focusing on efficient, integrated care, we collaborate with others in healthcare to address the whole patient journey — from awareness, prevention, and diagnosis, to treatment, therapy optimization, and long-term management.
