Purpose and Values

Our Story

At Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, we fully understand the life-changing impact that can result from delivering inspired and world-leading healthcare solutions.

After all, we changed the way the world delivers respiratory humidification to critically ill patients in hospital, and were the first organisation in the world to make a humidifier specifically for use in the treatment of patients with obstructive sleep apnea.

Today, through an unrivalled commitment to innovation; to doing the right thing; and doing what is best for the patient, we continue to inspire world-leading healthcare solutions.

Our team of self-motivated, empathetic and committed individuals is our strength. It is this team; our originality; the value we place on relationships; our international perspective; and the utmost care for all patients, customers, suppliers, shareholders, as well as the environment, that will ultimately ensure we will be the healthcare company of choice.
