We are a team of builders who share a passion to create lifesaving products and services that make a difference in patients’ lives. It is our privilege and responsibility to meet patients personally and to support and protect them through our work. We care, we collaborate, and we don’t take ourselves too seriously.
“This was my first job after graduating college, and I was joining as a young woman in STEM. As soon as I started, team members took me under their wings, and I never once doubted my belonging in this organization. It's comforting that regardless of my background or identity, I know I'll be treated with respect and equity.“
“One of the things we are very proud of at Kestra is that a significant fraction of our Team Members who are inventors and innovators identify as women and minorities."
“I get to work with so many great individuals from all different backgrounds and I learn so much on a daily basis from my fellow Team Members.“
“I love my role and the culture at Kestra! I wake up every morning optimistic and eager to carry out our mission.“
