Community Commitments

Beyond its work with health systems, our commitment to advancing human health includes a focus on communities.

For over 25 years, Johnson and Johnson has supported Operation Smile in its efforts to help transform the lives of children afflicted with cleft lip and cleft palate, and their families.

What began with the donation of Ethicon sutures has grown to donations across Johnson & Johnson of more than $25 million and a partnership that mobilizes the caring power of thousands of our associates. In support of this humanitarian work worldwide and a $25 million commitment between now and 2020, Tim Schmid, Chief Strategic Customer Officer for the Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies, also serves as the Johnson & Johnson Steering Committee Chair for Operation Smile. “The experience has been deeply impactful for me and others across the organization, and helps reinforce the importance of the work we do every day.”
