ealth is the one thing that every single one of us on earth needs—and that makes everything in life possible. It means we can live life fully. It means we can care for the people we love. It means we can be together.
When we founded our company in 1886, it was guided by a singular mission: help improve the health and well-being of humanity. And for the past 135 years, we've done this by driving and inspiring innovation and collaboration to help address some of the toughest health challenges facing people around the globe.
To this day, the idea of coming together across the company to help build a world of well touches everything we do—from the innovative cancer treatments our scientists work on to the surgical advances we help bring to operating rooms—so everyone can live and thrive in their own world of well.
