At Welch Allyn we specialize in helping doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers across the globe provide the best patient care by developing innovative products, breakthrough technologies, and cutting-edge solutions that help them see more patients, detect more conditions, and improve more lives. We have been a leader in the healthcare industry since our humble start in 1915; we set medical industry standards in the 1920's, we were the first to use fiber optics in medical instruments in the 1960's, and our innovation continues in the 21st century.
Advancing Frontline Care
We are the only company that focuses on what we like to call the "frontline of care" - doctors' offices, hospital emergency rooms, clinics, and skilled nursing facilities - the places where 95 percent of all patients seek treatment, but where just 5 percent of resources are utilized. For nearly 100 years, Welch Allyn has built a reputation for providing the most advanced technologies and solutions available to caregivers in frontline settings.
With every new product, every day, each and every one of us at Welch Allyn works to give frontline care providers the ability to assess, diagnose, treat, and manage a wide variety of illnesses and diseases, focus on more patients, perform more procedures, and provide better on-site care.
