ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.--(Antara/BUSINESS WIRE)-- Jabil Inc. (NYSE: JBL) today announced the consolidation of its entire healthcare organization under Jabil Healthcare, led by Steve Borges, CEO and EVP.

Jabil Healthcare serves five key sectors in the healthcare market: medical devices, orthopedics, diagnostics, pharmaceutical delivery systems, and consumer health. In each arena, demand for value-based care solutions is forcing significant changes in the evolution of healthcare products and services and driving digital health innovations. Taking center stage are Internet of Things (IoT) and digital health platform innovations enabled by connectivity, sensors and miniaturization.
“By harnessing the power of the Jabil and Nypro teams, we are in the unique position to accelerate technology advancements and augment the value we bring to our customers, their patients and the healthcare industry,” said Borges. “With the rise of digital health and additive manufacturing, the time is right to unite our diverse capabilities and domain expertise under one strong brand.”
