Establishing Vantive

Establishing Vantive

Proposed Kidney Care Separation  

We began the journey to establish our chronic kidney care and acute therapies businesses into one standalone company in January 2023. The proposed separation from Baxter will establish Vantive, a new standalone company with an impressive 70 years of experience and a single focus on advancing therapies and services for kidney care and other vital organ support. Until completion of the proposed separation, our Kidney Care group will continue to do business as Baxter.

The energy and excitement our organization has toward building a new kidney and critical care company based on a 70-year legacy of pioneering therapy in this space is truly electrifying. Our new brand is coming to life through our teams’ steadfast commitment to helping patients lead full and meaningful lives in partnership with our healthcare customers. We are eager to continue collaborating with the kidney and critical care communities to help transform care.

Committed to Our Patients and Customers

Vantive will continue to serve as a trusted partner to providers and clinicians, focusing on improving outcomes for the more than one million patients we serve every year around the world. We are driven by the role we play in helping patients and their healthcare teams. Their determination inspires us to continually deliver new and bold technologies that will empower them and help to transform chronic kidney care and acute therapies. While we continue to advance the separation activities, we are still operating as Baxter. As we work to seamlessly separate our businesses, we will provide relevant updates to our patients, customers and other stakeholders.
