Philips jumps nearly 50 spots in prestigious listing of publicly traded companies

Philips has once again earned a place on the Forbes “Global 2000: The World’s Largest Public Companies” list, moving up 46 spots from 2019. In its new position, the company now also ranks as one of the top ten global public healthcare companies. The annual list, which has been released for the past 18 years, features a ranking of the biggest, most powerful and most valuable companies in the world. Philips ranked 385 out of the 2,000 publicly traded companies on the full list. 

 

The Forbes Global 2000 list is a highly regarded authority on corporate rankings globally. Companies that are featured are chosen based on four metrics: sales, profit, assets and market value. This is the first year Philips holds one of the top ten spots in the healthcare category as it helps its customers address the quadruple aim of providing better health outcomes, improving patient and staff experiences and lowering the cost of care.

This ranking is validation that our constant drive for innovation and ability to break down data to give clinicians access to the right information at the right time is making a difference.

Vitor Rocha

Chief Market Leader for Philips North America.

“Our mission to improve people’s lives by transforming how care is delivered and improving health care for the communities our partners serve has never been more important,” said Vitor Rocha, Chief Market Leader for Philips North America.  “This ranking is validation that our constant drive for innovation and ability to break down data to give clinicians access to the right information at the right time is making a difference.” 

 

In addition to its placement on the Global 2000 list, Philips also earned a spot on Forbes’ list of America’s Best Employers for Diversity earlier this year. For more information and to view the full Global 2000 list, please visit https://www.forbes.com/global2000
