Addressing Challenges. Transforming Lives.

One of the major social challenges of our time is determining how to provide high-quality, affordable health care to an aging population on a universal basis. Part of the answer to this challenge is that medical device companies must create innovative technologies that improve patient outcomes while also reducing the cost of health care. Addressing this challenge is one of the most significant societal impacts that St. Jude Medical can deliver to not only physicians and patients, but the world.

St. Jude Medical has become and will continue to be one of the largest and most successful medical device companies by delivering high-quality, innovative products that reduce health care costs and improve outcomes for patients who suffer from expensive, epidemic diseases such as atrial fibrillation, heart failure, hypertension, stroke, and chronic pain.
