Roger Cardona of Santa Rosa sees his company and another great company merging soon and is looking forward to the merger.

Online PR News – 23-July-2014 – Santa Rosa, California – Roger Cardona of Santa Rosa happily employed by Medtronic. Medtronic is a medical device manufacturer. Recently Medtronic announced the acquisition of Covidien. Medtronic and Covidien are two of the leading medical device manufacturers in the world.

Medtronic specializes in making spinal treatment therapies, pacemakers, and other therapies. Covidien makes surgical equipment like sutures, needles, and ventilators. Both of these companies have been around for a long period of time, and while the resulting company will likely move its Headquarters to Ireland where Covidien is currently located, they will continue to invest and help people all over the world.

Roger Cardona of Santa Rosa has worked for Medtronic for seven years now and sees the company growing. This can provide a great opportunity to continue to grow with the company. Medtronic has been around since 1949. While today it is the largest medical technology company, it started out as a medical equipment repair shop. The first major piece of equipment they made was a battery powered, wearable, cardiac pacemaker. Many of the future Medtronic therapies were based on this original technology and this electrical stimulation continues to help millions of people. Some of the other main core technologies include drug delivery devices, advanced surgical instruments and implantable medical devices. When Medtronic wrote their mission statement in 1960, it would have been hard to believe that more than 50 years later the mission statement would still be at the heart of everything they do. Their mission statement is all focused on helping people:

To contribute to human welfare by application of biomedical engineering in the research, design, manufacture, and sale of instruments or appliances that alleviate pain, restore health, and extend life.

Roger Cardona of Santa Rosa knows that the Medtronic mission dovetails nicely with Covidien. Covidien can trace its healthcare roots back to World War One. During the war, a company named Kendall made absorbent cotton gauze that was in high demand as medical dressings. After the war Kendall diversified and continued on its path for the next half a century until being acquired by Tyco. Tyco began its healthcare line of products in 1960 and continued to strengthen the brand until the early 90's. In the 90's, a string of investments were made bringing many brands under the Tyco healthcare roof. Kendall was one of the many. In 2007, Tyco International spun off its healthcare division, which renamed itself, Covidien, which comes from the Latin, roots meaning together and life. Covidien believes very firmly in its mission statement:

Create and deliver innovative healthcare solutions, developed in ethical collaboration with medical professionals, which enhance the quality of life for patients and improve outcomes for our customers and our shareholders.

And Covidien works hard to bring those goals to life every day.

Roger Cardona of Santa Rosa knows that these two companies are serious about their growth and constantly look to the future. Roger is happy to be a part of the continued growth and his company constantly works to better help people. Roger Cardona of Santa Rosa understands that working for a company like Medtronic, which is dedicated to helping people, is a rewarding career path and looks forward to many more years there.
