Written in 1960, our Mission dictates that our first and foremost priority is to contribute to human welfare. Over a half-century later, the Mission continues to serve as our ethical framework and inspirational goal for our employees around the world. It guides our day-to-day work and reminds us that our efforts are transforming the lives of millions of people each year.
There are common themes across every medical specialty we support: patients want to get better and doctors want simpler, more effective options. That's why we work hard to improve our minimally invasive medical devices and the way they're delivered to hospitals and doctors around the world. Being a family-owned business allows us to do what's best for the patient. It gives us the freedom to work through a problem for as long as it takes to find the simplest solution. We also have companies that work in areas outside of medical device manufacturing.
At Ethicon, our measure of success is the people we impact around the world—the patients who are now enjoying longer, healthier lives. We’re committed to addressing the world’s most pressing healthcare issues by advancing technologies, research and training, and working with healthcare providers globally to create solutions that improve health outcomes and expand access to quality surgical care. From creating the first sutures to revolutionizing surgery with minimally invasive procedures to finding innovative solutions today, Ethicon* has been Shaping the future of surgery for more than 100 years.
