Reimagining the future of healthcare, together

Solutions to the toughest healthcare challenges can only come through strong partnerships. Medtronic LABS takes a hyper local approach to tap into the expertise of the communities they seek to serve. The people closest to the issues are also closest to the solutions. That’s why LABS employs researchers and designers in the communities where it works — with over 85% of its employees based regionally. LABS partners with local governments, faith-based organizations, and health systems to deliver a full spectrum of healthcare services to those who need it most.
