IllustrationSiemens Healthineers (Erlangen, Germany) has entered into an agreement to acquire Varian Medical Systems, Inc. (Palo Alto, CA, USA) that will lead to the creation of a global leader in healthcare with a comprehensive portfolio to fight cancer.

Varian is a world leader in the field of cancer care, with innovative solutions especially in radiation oncology and related software. With a holistic approach to cancer care, the company is increasingly leveraging technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and data analysis to further improve cancer treatment and expand access to care. Since 2012, both the companies have been working together in the strategic “EnVision” partnership to shape the future of cancer treatment, combining Varian’s innovative therapeutic systems and Siemens Healthineers leading imaging technology. This transaction builds on this long-standing partnership to develop improved cancer therapy solutions-from imaging for treatment planning to focused radiation therapy-for efficient workflow and effective, personalized treatment. Varian’s decades of progress in developing and delivering multidisciplinary, integrated cancer care makes the company an ideal fit for Siemens Healthineers’ leading businesses in medical imaging, laboratory diagnostics and interventional procedures.

“With this combination of two leading companies we make two leaps in one step: A leap in the fight against cancer and a leap in our overall impact on healthcare. This decisive moment in the history of our companies means more hope and less uncertainty for patients, an even stronger partner for our customers, and for society more effective and efficient medical care. Together with Varian's outstanding and passionate employees, we will shape the future of healthcare more than ever before,” said Dr. Bernd Montag, CEO of Siemens Healthineers AG.

“Varian’s innovative and patient centric culture has enabled us to become an iconic leader in radiotherapy and multi-disciplinary cancer care, with a trusted global brand and strong customer loyalty,” said Dow Wilson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Varian. “Siemens Healthineers values our talented and engaged employees and recognizes the strength of the Varian brand, our cutting-edge portfolio, and the relationships we’ve nurtured. We are thrilled to partner with Siemens Healthineers to extend our renowned customer care, serving clinicians and patients from the very first stage in the fight against cancer. With Siemens Healthineers, we will transform care for a greater number of patients worldwide, as well as broaden opportunities for our employees as part of a larger and more global organization. That is why our Board is confident that combining with Siemens Healthineers is the right path forward for Varian – delivering immediate and compelling value to our shareholders, while bringing us even closer to our transformative vision of a world without fear of cancer.”

“With the acquisition of Varian, Siemens Healthineers is entering another attractive growth market that offers the company significant potential for value creation and aligns perfectly with the upgrading phase of Siemens Healthineers’ strategy. Siemens Healthineers is creating an unprecedented, highly integrated portfolio for the global fight against cancer,” said Prof. Dr. Ralf P. Thomas, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Siemens Healthineers AG.
