Caring for life

We are a global team of 40,500 dedicated people who share a common purpose – to put lifesaving medicines and technologies in the hands of people who care for patients, and to find answers to the challenges they face.  We call this purpose “caring for life” and it is both the reason we exist as a company and the way we work together to serve our customers and our communities.


At Fresenius Kabi, our values define how we work, and each one, brought to life through our people and teams, working shoulder to shoulder with medical professionals, makes caring possible.

Customer focus: We put customers first. We strive to anticipate and understand customer needs, listening actively and with empathy, and tracking preferences, needs, and trends. We give the highest priority to customer satisfaction, monitoring our customers’ experience, responding to customer feedback, and providing prompt, reliable service and follow-through.

Quality: We demand excellence. We continuously improve how we work and inspire excellence in everything we do. Our teams seek to enhance products and services — and the processes behind them — applying good judgment, taking appropriate risks, and owning our actions and results. 

Integrity: We are trustworthy. We earn and inspire trust by acting ethically, demonstrating consistency in words and actions, and applying high standards of professionalism, honesty and respect in everything we do.  We deliver on the commitments we make.

Collaboration: We work well together. We actively seek ideas and expertise, appreciate individual differences, and provide access to information in ways that build long-term relationships inside and outside our company.

Creativity: We deliver solutions. We strive to find answers to the challenges our customers face – often under uncertain or changing conditions. We never settle for the status quo, but anticipate and adapt to future needs, look for and apply new ideas and approaches, and own and resolve obstacles as they arise. 

Passion and commitment:  We care. We bring a can-do and will-do attitude to everything we do, taking initiative and actively contributing to support the caring mission of our customers. We help one another derive meaning and significance from our impact on patient care, inspire collective energy and enthusiasm, and recognize and reward exceptional effort towards the achievement of our goals.

Diversity & Inclusion

At Fresenius Kabi, we are building a sustainable culture of inclusion that embraces different experiences and perspectives, where we can all thrive and where we all belong.  

Fresenius Kabi recognizes that diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) makes us stronger as an organization – for our employees and the customers and patients we serve. With the same commitment and passion that drive our employees’ dedication to offering lifesaving medicines and technologies to patients, at Fresenius Kabi we have embraced the journey of making DEI an integral part of our culture.  

Our commitment to DEI is grounded in our purpose of caring for life.

Social impact

Fresenius Kabi is committed to supporting our communities as well as scientific, clinical and educational institutions and programs intended to improve human health and well-being.  We do this through employee engagement and financial support.

The American Nurse Project

The aim of The American Nurse Project is to elevate the voice of nurses in this country by capturing their personal stories through photography and film, inspiring audiences to think about nurses in a way they may never have before, with a newfound appreciation for this indispensable figure on the front lines of health. Fresenius Kabi is the sole sponsor of this project’s book and feature-length documentary, and provides support for The American Nurse Scholarship Fund with the proceeds from these activities.

Blood Collectors Week

Thousands of blood collectors across the United States work tirelessly every day to ensure a positive experience for donors and to secure a safe and adequate supply of blood for patients. For more than a decade, Fresenius Kabi has partnered with AABB to sponsor the annual Blood Collectors Week. Each year we recognize the outstanding contributions of all these professionals with turnkey tools that blood centers can use to thank their current employees and invite new candidates to join their ranks.

Donation Hall of Fame

Transfusion medicine professionals — from researchers and engineers to clinicians and blood collectors — depend on the deep generosity of donors to make their critical work possible. For more than two decades, Fresenius Kabi has partnered with blood centers across the United States to celebrate the most committed of these individuals and the causes that they support through the Donation Hall of Fame. Each year, we develop turn-key tools, like the Product and Donor Eligibility Dating Calendar, incorporating real, inspiring stories of donors nominated by their own communities, that blood centers can use to motivate staff, thank their donor base, and enhance their local recruitment efforts.
