Acute Care: Our silent impact
Partners in prevention
Stryker’s Acute Care business develops innovative medical equipment focused on improving outcomes for patients and caregivers. We are focused on safety, prevention, and ease of use - bringing caregivers confidence and delivering proven outcomes.
Every year in the United States, more than 35 million patients are admitted to hospitals.
Of those, 2.5 million patients are treated for hospital-acquired pressure injuries.
While being treat in a hospital, roughly 850,000 patients experience a fall.
721,800 patients acquire healthcare-associated infections every year and more than 150,000 people are admitted for cardiac arrests.
In Acute Care alone, we touch 24,218 people every day.
Every year, we help prevent more than 8.8 million people from these unfortunate and preventable hospital-acquired conditions.
