CLINICA 100 TOP 10: Philips Healthcare
This article was originally published in Clinica
No change for Philips Healthcare as it hangs on to its No 5 spot on our Clinica 100* list and is No 4 in our Imaging list. In September 2014, Philips announced it was splitting off its lighting business into a separate concern, and this is scheduled for the first half of 2016. It is also merging its healthcare and consumer lifestyle divisions to form a single unit called HealthTech. The company has spent much of 2015 working on reorganizing its operations to reflect this strategic change. See how Philips’ healthcare business performed in the last five years.
