TOKYO, October 25, 2019 - PHC Holdings Corporation (headquarters: Tokyo, Japan, hereafter PHC) has today announced that it has established the new Mission, Vision, and Values of the PHC Group.

The PHC Group currently offers value-added products and services across the diabetes management, diagnostics, life sciences, and healthcare service businesses. The company recently completed the acquisition of an anatomical pathology business from Thermo Fisher Scientific in June 2019 which now operates as Epredia, a new stand-alone company. In August 2019 it acquired all shares of LSI Medience Corporation based on a strategic capital alliance with Life Science Institute, Inc. This has resulted in the PHC Group evolving into a more diversified global healthcare company with over 10,000 employees across a more varied portfolio of businesses.

To better articulate this new organization, the PHC Group has unveiled a group Mission, Vision and Values to define the direction of the company and describe how it will achieve future growth ambitions. They represent the common purpose, ambitions, and principles of the entire organization, as well as the strengths and beliefs linking each group company together.

They define the company we want to become and how we will to get there. Our purpose has not changed and the Mission for our company has been the foundation since PHCHD was established.
