Welcome to Bausch Health.
The decision to change our name was considered carefully over a long period of time. We looked at a number of available options and determined that Bausch Health most accurately represents the full scope of our portfolio, which includes not only pharmaceuticals, but also medical devices and over-the-counter consumer health products.
In fact, we are a global, diversified health care company. Beyond our U.S. prescription pharmaceuticals business, approximately 20 percent of our revenues come from medical devices, approximately 15 percent from over-the-counter products and approximately 15 percent from prescription generic products sold outside of the United States.
The Bausch name embodies a rich history of innovation, fortitude and dedication to patient health dating back to when J.J. Bausch opened his first optical goods shop more than 165 years ago. These qualities form the foundation of who we are today as we continue to build an innovative company striving to improve the health of patients globally.
It’s also important to emphasize that our Bausch + Lomb, Salix Pharmaceuticals and Ortho Dermatologics businesses will continue to use their existing names and brands in the United States. Outside of the United States, our subsidiaries and businesses with separate established brand names will continue to operate under their existing names.
We believe that Bausch Health Companies perfectly reflects the company we are today – innovative, global and focused on patient health.
