At the foundation of our business is a fundamental commitment to Our Credo, which was written in 1943 and established the business values and philosophy that guide all our operating companies worldwide. Our Credo puts patients and customers first, followed by our employees, our communities and our shareholders.
With Our Credo as a foundation, our long-standing operating model has four simple concepts: being broadly based in human health; managing our business for the long term; taking a decentralized management approach; and focusing on our people and values.
