How to measure a year. To our 94,000 employees, 2017 was tens of millions of lives touched by our innovations. Every single day. It was 8 million babies nourished; 10,000 hearts healthier; thousands of people living with less pain and fewer tremors; 400,000 people with diabetes freed from the routine fingerstick1; millions of people with the health information they needed from our diagnostic tests to make some of their biggest life decisions. It all adds up – Fortune recently recognized us as the 2017 top medical products and equipment company on its Most Admired Companies list, for the fifth consecutive year.
