Guidant is a world leader in the design and development of cardiovascular medical products. Our devices help patients with heart disease return to active and productive lives. We provide physicians with leading-edge technologies for improved patient management and clinical outcomes. And we've created a culture in which employees, investors and our communities share in our success.

Guidant was incorporated in 1994, and since has grown to $3.2 billion in revenue and more than 12,000 employees. Corporate headquarters are in Indianapolis, with major operations in California, Minnesota, Texas, Washington, Puerto Rico and Ireland. Our products are distributed by a sales force recognized throughout the industry for its clinical expertise and customer service.

Although Guidant is a young organization, our four business groups have established track records in their markets. Our structure provides the resources of a large organization, while preserving the innovative and entrepreneurial environment of a smaller company. The business groups stay close to the customer and respond quickly to evolving needs. They advance Guidant's mission of providing leading-edge technology for physicians and life-saving therapy for patients.
