At Medtronic, we're changing the face of chronic disease. By working closely with physicians around the world, we create therapies to help patients do things they never thought possible.
Like the business owner in England with Parkinson's disease who could finally feed himself again. Or the preschool teacher in America with coronary artery disease who was able to ride her motorcycle again. Or the dietitian in India who was able to control her diabetes well enough to have a baby.
Our medical technologies help make it possible for millions of people to resume everyday activities, return to work, and live better, longer. We're able to do this with the help of some very special people around the world: 38,000 dedicated employees who share a passionate purpose to improve lives, thousands of medical professionals who share their insights and ideas, and hundreds of advocacy associations that help us share information so people with debilitating diseases know relief is possible.
Every new employee worldwide receives a Medtronic Medallion from senior executives as a reminder of the honor and responsibility we have in fulfilling our Mission.
