Who we are

We’re still the “do whatever it takes” family business that started it all

OUR PEOPLE

Get to know our people, our culture and what drives us

We’re problem solvers and strategic thinkers on a mission to make healthcare run better. Our employees are empowered to make and act on their own decisions, all thanks to an entrepreneurial culture. Every day, we come to work with one purpose: to help our partners free up the resources they need to deliver their best care.

How do we do it? Our agile workforce—from clinicians and product specialists to supply chain experts—has the ability to respond quickly to a dynamically changing market, customizing solutions to our customers’ unique needs. This is what makes us more than a manufacturer and distributor. And we’re proving it every day.

Whether it’s spending time out in the field, engaging with employees at every level or meeting with customers one on one, our leadership team models Medline’s core values of accessibility and collaboration. This is what drives our success and long-lasting customer relationships.

“We want that culture where people have ideas and want to fight for their ideas.”
