At Applied Medical, we believe that transforming healthcare through affordable innovation is only the beginning of our responsibility. Accordingly, we maintain a strong commitment to our local and global communities. We value our partnership with over 170 nonprofit organizations, supporting their crucial efforts through financial, in-kind or volunteer support, or a combination of these.
Throughout the year, we provide team members with volunteer opportunities to create positive change and make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. This helps build partnerships within our community while strengthening the bonds between team members.
Applied Medical sponsors, and our team members participate in, a variety of fundraising events for nonprofit organizations such as SIMAVI, which helps promote the health and well-being of girls and women in many African and Asian countries.
Applied Medical coordinates various volunteer opportunities for team members, including packaging food with Rise Against Hunger, an international hunger relief organization that distributes food to the world’s most vulnerable people.
By organizing annual drives to collect toys, gently worn clothing and school supplies, Applied Medical supports local organizations such as Illumination Foundation, Olive Crest, Giving Children Hope and Sympany.
Applied Medical offers facility tours and workshops to area students. These activities give them an up-close-and-personal view of how we design and manufacture our medical devices, along with a glimpse of how surgeons use our devices to perform minimally invasive surgery, broadening their horizons and introducing them to a wide range of career options.
