We believe technology can help close the world’s health gaps. By putting people first, we find new ways to advance health while reducing costs. And through partnerships, education, and advocacy, we dismantle barriers to care so more people can benefit from these life-transforming innovations.

Inclusion, Diversity & Equity

We believe in zero barriers to opportunity, so we use all the assets we have to advance equity in our communities and within our business. We drive toward a future where all our employees belong and can contribute their full life experience, amplifying our efforts to improve health in global communities.

We believe that people can only live their healthiest lives on a healthy planet. That’s why we minimize our environmental footprint by finding innovative ways to reduce our operational carbon footprint, cutting our waste and water usage, and building sustainability into our products.


Six powerful words have inspired us to do the extraordinary for 60 years and counting: Alleviate pain. Restore health. Extend life.
