Transforming healthcare. And lives.

We are a team of 54,000 highly dedicated employees around the globe who are innovating every day, truly shaping the future of healthcare.

Our purpose

When our health is at risk, we rely on physicians to make the best possible decisions – from quick, early diagnoses to the most effective treatments and follow-ups.

Our products, services, and solutions help physicians, medical staff, and healthcare providers prevent illnesses from occurring and correctly diagnose and determine the right treatments for people who do become ill, helping them to recover faster.

We always evolve and never stand still. We continuously adapt to new challenges and constantly bring groundbreaking innovations to market – for the benefit of patients, medical professionals, and society.

What all healthcare systems have in common is their demand for high-value care – providing better outcomes with fewer resources. And while medtech is a global business, healthcare is inherently local.

World map

We are currently present in more than 70 countries around the globe, making sure we are close to our customers. Our products, solutions, and services are customized to meet local market needs, benefiting from an unmatched global expertise.

Our mission

A physician looking at patient data

The future of healthcare will bring far-reaching changes, but what will it look like? We believe that medicine will become more precise, value will shape care delivery, patients will become empowered consumers, and digitalization will transform every facet of healthcare.

We expand precision medicine through solutions that make diagnosis quicker and more accurate, reduce unwarranted variations, and enable personalized therapies, so that high-value care is provided for every patient at the right time.

With our strong medical technology portfolio, including our digital platforms and solutions, we are uniquely placed in the in-vivo and in-vitro markets to combine and analyze pertinent data and knowledge and to turn it into usable, actionable information for clinical decision making.
By transforming care delivery, we help break down department silos and make clinical operations more efficient, making treatments more accessible, and cost efficient.

Our solutions help manage population health and increase workforce productivity. For example, by automating repetitive tasks and procedures, we free experts from routine work, letting them focus on the accurate diagnosis and treatment of their patients.

Patients are at the heart of every healthcare system. Our patient-centric products help improve the patient experience, and our digital health solutions engage patients in managing their own health, so that the care provided is addressing individual needs.

Through digitalization and artificial intelligence (AI), medicine has reached a turning point. The digital revolution in healthcare gives us a wealth of opportunities that we need to capitalize on.

Big data and AI will transform the way we understand and treat disease, as complex data is translated into actionable insights. The patient experience will no longer be episodic, but rather one seamless journey with benefits along the entire care continuum.

Our innovation legacy

Our archives still hold a letter from Roentgen dating back to 1896 praising the quality of tubes provided by Siemens.

Extract from the original card from Roentgen

“Your tubes are really very good,” was the simple but significant praise penned on what is probably the most pleasing postcard in the company’s history.
