Our Philosophy

Advancing Wellness™ …through the right people and the right products

Our vision guides everything we do. "Advancing" focuses on Hospira's progressive, positive and purposeful approach as we look to the future. "Wellness" demonstrates a broad commitment to healthcare, supported by a wide variety of products that help improve the well being of patients around the world. Wellness also refers to the overall well being of our customers, employees, shareholders and communities.

The "right people" — our employees — are a talented group of dedicated, customer-focused, entrepreneurial individuals who are committed to working under the highest standards of integrity and ethics. The "right products" refers to our broad portfolio of products that provides quality, reliability and cost-effectiveness.

Our key values — integrity, ownership/accountability, speed and entrepreneurial spirit — are based on the current strengths of our business, our people and products, and our continual drive to deliver on our commitment.

We have an unwavering commitment to:
  • Our customers and patients, delivering on our promise by serving their needs with integrity, trust and innovation.
  • Our employees, by embracing diversity of thought and cultural perspective, and fostering an environment of empowerment, fairness and respect.
  • Our shareholders, by safeguarding their investment and providing a fair return.
  • Our communities, acknowledging our social responsibility through active citizenship and thoughtful giving.
