Mission and Values

Varian’s mission is to combine the ingenuity of people with the power of data and technology to achieve new victories against cancer. Very early on, we pioneered the use of high energy X-rays for cancer treatments and developed the first linear accelerators to deliver radiotherapy. Today, we are the world’s leading supplier of radiotherapy treatment solutions, continually improving delivery systems and advancing the field with new technologies, such as radiosurgery and proton therapy.

One of the reasons I came here more than 10 years ago was because this is a company that utilises its resources and talent to help people globally. Our people want to help save lives – they feel passionately about it. I’m very proud of all of them. I’m excited about what they’ll do next.

— Dow Wilson, CEO
