"Philips Healthcare equipment helped my mom through successful heart valve surgery, and supported my daughter during a severe allergic reaction. This has inspired me to do all I can to enable others to have access when they need care. My job is meaningful because I ensure the ongoing availability and quality of our products. For me, working at Philips isn't just a job; it's also part of my family's story." - Mike Bravo, Dad & Son / Head of Supplier Quality (Andover, MA)
