“We believe that our mission to save and sustain lives is our ultimate statement of corporate responsibility. The global impact of our products, presence and activities will always be assessed through this lens, as we touch the lives of patients, clinicians, communities, employees and other constituencies worldwide." Joe Almeida, Chairman and CEO

Our employees are passionate about our mission, which is reflected in our portfolio of life-saving and sustaining products, our emphasis on environmental stewardship, our commitment to innovation and our uncompromising dedication to responsible business practices.
