At Covidien, we're passionate about making doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other medical professionals as effective as they can be. From Autosuture to Valleylab, from Kendall to Mallinckrodt, our industry-leading brands are known worldwide for uncompromising quality.
Through ongoing collaboration with medical professionals and organizations, we identify clinical needs and translate them into proven products and procedures. Over the years, we've pioneered a number of medical advances including contrast media, pulse oximetry, electrosurgery, surgical stapling and laparoscopic instrumentation.
Offering an extensive product line that spans medical devices, pharmaceuticals and medical supplies, we serve healthcare needs in hospitals, long-term care and alternate care facilities, doctors’ offices and in the home.
Covidien is part of the local fabric of the communities where we operate. Deriving more than 40% of our sales from outside the United States, Covidien's success wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of our 42,000 employees, who live in more than 60 countries. Nearly two-thirds of our colleagues work in 58 manufacturing facilities located in 16 countries. In addition, more than 5,000 sales representatives in more than 60 countries meet our customers’ needs every day.
