“Not only is this facility a Center of Excellence for diabetes therapy management, it supports Medtronic’s commitment to accelerating the pace of innovation to improve patients’ lives,” said Katie Szyman, president of the Diabetes business and senior vice president at Medtronic. “We are delighted to be able to expand our business operations in the San Antonio community, as well as support South Texas by bringing new jobs to the area.”

Medtronic’s Diabetes Therapy Management and Education Center is fully integrated with the Diabetes business, which is based in Northridge, Calif., and focused on providing customer experience excellence. Medtronic continues to invest in both its Northridge and San Antonio operations to provide world class customer care.
