The campaign is part of the organization’s ongoing transformation to a new global operating model, allowing it to continue to shape the future of healthcare. Positioning itself for sustainable growth, Fresenius Medical Care will continue to focus on employee engagement, diversity and inclusion, promoting a culture where the different perspectives, ideas and skills of employees come together as one, contributing to all.

With more than 90,000 employees providing healthcare services at more than 4,100 dialysis centers in approximately 50 countries, Fresenius Medical Care is a major global employer of nurses and a contributor to healthcare systems around the world. “Around the world, there is great diversity within our nursing teams who come from a myriad of cultures and backgrounds,” said Rice Powell, CEO of Fresenius Medical Care. “Yet when these diverse healthcare professionals are united by a common purpose, they have a profound and positive impact on the patients, families and communities they serve. It is the strength of this diversity and unity that we celebrate and that we have relied on to further support our nurses. We want every nurse to realize how special they are and how much they mean to our organization,” he said.

On International Nurses Day, the theme Uniting in Care will come to life through a multi-channel, fully integrated campaign that covers a range of digital activities that will unite nurses and clinical teams across the world. Staff from different regions and countries will upload their photos and messages to an interactive virtual photo booth and gallery, explaining what United in Care means to them, helping nurses feel connected to each other, wherever they are – creating a vast gathering of nurses from around the world.

A special video series, A World Apart – United in Care will further explore the campaign theme, bringing together pairs of clinical care staff from different regions who have very different backgrounds and experiences. The captured moments will reveal how these healthcare professionals are united in what matters most to them and is close to their hearts.

Importantly, ‘United in Care’ also shares the broader theme of International Nurses Day 2022: ‘Investing in nursing and respecting rights to secure global health’, which focuses on the need to constitute a stronger, more resilient and satisfied nursing workforce that will help strengthen health systems around the world.

“We are creating new educational opportunities and expanding our offerings and digital platforms to help nurses develop their knowledge, skills and confidence in a wide range of areas, while special awards recognize the dedication of nurses across our network of clinics. We know it’s more important than ever to support the mental health and well-being of all staff, and especially our clinical teams, and so we offer courses, digital tools, confidential counseling and groups internal support,” said Rice Powell. “Fresenius Medical Care is entering an important new era where our globalization will leverage expertise, accelerate innovations, continue to build our culture of integrity and highlight the strength of our diversity and unity. We are at our best when we work as one company with a common vision to improve the quality of life for patients around the world.
