Royal Philips announced the launch of an innovation campus in Yelahanka, Bengaluru. The 650,000 sq ft campus will accommodate over 5,000 professionals working on innovative health technologies aimed at improving patient experiences, achieving better health outcomes, improving staff experiences, and lowering the cost of care.
The new centre in Bengaluru not only signifies a landmark in Philips’ global footprint but will also play a pivotal role in revolutionising the healthcare landscape in India and beyond. For Philips, digital connectivity and technological innovation are key to expanding access to care and achieving universal health coverage. These form core elements of Philips’ aspiration to improve the lives of 400 million people a year in underserved communities – which is part of the goal to improve the lives of 2.5 billion people a year by 2030.
With approximately 9,000 employees already contributing to Philips’ mission across India, the company has established a strong presence in the country. Its Healthcare Innovation Center in Pune, Global Business Services in Chennai, and commercial teams in Gurgaon are integral to Philips’ operations.
“Philips has been innovating for more than 130 years, and started doing business in India some 92 years ago,” said Roy Jakobs, CEO, Royal Philips. “In the last 27 years, the Philips Innovation Campus in Bengaluru has grown to represent almost all our business categories and supporting roles. This means we’re able to help more healthcare providers help more patients, efficiently and sustainably, and make it easier for more people to take care of their health and well-being. This new campus is a testimony of our commitment to further building our capabilities in India and leveraging the same for customers globally.”
“At Philips, we see a huge potential to make a difference through innovation, design and sustainability and help ensure that healthcare works for everyone. In India, we not only want to speed up access to care but also locally develop and contribute to solutions for the rest of the world. This new campus reflects our desire to support the country’s healthcare goals through the development and manufacturing of healthcare solutions.”
