Fisher & Paykel Healthcare is a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of products and systems for use in acute and chronic respiratory care, surgery and the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. Our company’s purpose is to improve care and outcomes through inspired and world-leading healthcare solutions.
Our medical devices and technologies are designed to help clinicians around the world deliver the best possible patient care. They enable patients to transition to less-acute care settings, recover more quickly, and avoid more serious conditions. Because of our products and therapies, many patients can be treated in the comfort of their own homes instead of in hospitals. Not only does this make life better for the patient, it reduces costs for the world’s healthcare systems.
Product innovation has been the cornerstone of our success since 1969, when our first prototype humidifier was developed. Today, we are still striving to lead the way in the development of medical devices and technologies by continuously improving our products, pioneering new therapies, and changing clinical practice.
We employ more than 5000 people who are based in 39 countries and serve over 120 countries around the world. It is estimated that 16 million patients were treated using our products last year.
