40 Years page
Helping to address key healthcare challenges requires more than technology – it takes global collaboration and commitment in everything we do. For 40 years, the Boston Scientific team of more than 32,000 employees has been united by a focus on improving the lives of more than 30 million patients and their families around the world. We continue to celebrate 40 years of advancing science for life by asking employees how Boston Scientific is different from other companies and what valuable lessons they have learned while working here.
