GE Healthcare’s Healthcare Systems business provides a wide range of technologies and services for clinicians and healthcare administrators that can help caregivers improve the consistency, quality and efficiency of patient care everywhere. These technologies help provide fast, non-invasive ways for doctors to see broken bones, diagnose trauma cases in the ER, view the heart and its function, or identify the early stages of cancers or brain disorders. With X-ray, digital mammography, CT, MR and Molecular Imaging technologies, GE creates industry-leading products that allow clinicians to see inside the human body more clearly than ever. In addition, with efforts in ultrasound, ECG, bone densitometry, patient monitoring, interventional imaging, incubators and infant warmers, respiratory care, anesthesia management and a wide range of technologies and services for clinicians and healthcare administrators, GE’s Healthcare Systems business enables clinicians to provide better care for millions of patients every day – from wellness check ups to advanced diagnostics to life-saving treatment.

What makes GE Healthcare different? Leadership & Learning – Learning is more than a classroom activity. It’s how we come together to embrace change, develop skills for change, and get energized. GE spends more than $1 billion annually in employee development and leadership training.
