Health care around the globe is changing radically. The population is growing and people are getting older. Traditional infections, together with welfare diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, obesity and diabetes, are pressuring current health care systems and providers. And as a result, more people will need treatments with less available resources. We are committed to meet these challenges together with health care providers and be part of improving patients’ lives around the globe, today and in the future. That is why we empower our customers with knowledge, technology and resources needed to set up the most efficient structures for hospital and life science institutions and save lives with improved clinical results. We were founded in 1904 in the village of Getinge on the Swedish west coast. Today we have more than 10 000 employees and operations in over 40 countries.
