In a remarkable journey of perseverance, vision and dedication, our story has
defied all odds in healing an entire industry. All by focusing on one thing:
creating women-centric solutions. What started as a dream to change the
landscape of Women’s Health, has blossomed into an awe-inspiring reality.
And we’re only getting started.
July marks yet another milestone in our journey, as we gather to celebrate the
inauguration of a cutting-edge innovation campus in Costa Rica. We take great
pride in knowing that our headquarters and laboratories are based in such a
culturally rich country that celebrates sustainability, social development,
and is full of such a collective kindness in its nature that radiates warmth.
It serves as a strong partner to drive an ecosystem that connects and responds
to fast-evolving needs, where technology and women-centricity converge to
shape the future of healthcare.
This remarkable achievement, accomplished in just nine years, has transformed
Women’s Health in ways our founders could have never imagined.
A Center of Creation, Community, and Balance
The great Sulàyöm mountain, inspiration for our innovation campus, dates to
the indigenous Bribri tribe’s origin stories. From the beginning of time, it
was chosen as a sacred center by the gods, considered to be the center of the
earth and the sky. A place where the god Sibö̀ planted seeds, guarded by Surá,
that resulted in the birth of the Bribris and their sister tribes.
For us, Sulàyöm represents a center of innovation, the heart of our community
designed to host Women’s Health contributors from all over the world who can
meet with patients and healthcare professionals to create, connect, and
innovate. The campus stands as a symbol of inclusivity and progress.
A Hub for Women’s Health Contributors, Patients, and Healthcare Professionals
This spirit of collaboration and knowledge exchange begins with our clinical
amphitheater, the Sulàyöm Global Learning Center; a space dedicated to medical
education and learning. Experts and medical professionals from various
disciplines will gather here to share their expertise, refine their skills,
and collectively shape the future of women’s healthcare.
It will also feature a studio for content creation, expanding our ability to
communicate and share with the world our solutions for Women’s Health and
well-being, while honoring the stories of empowered women all over the world.
Sulàyöm is surrounded by the Resilience Forest, a forest planted by breast
cancer survivors, acknowledging both their rebirth and perseverance, and
serving as a daily reminder of the importance of our work. Equipped with
state-of-the-art facilities, Sulàyöm fosters an environment where new ideas
are nurtured, and innovation thrives. Its walls are full of creations by
artists from all over the world, further solidifying the beauty of our
position as a global company.
We Before Me
‘We Before Me’ is our guiding principle within the company and represents all
our achievements to date. The collective efforts of collaborators throughout
the world are integral to everything we have reached, and will reach, in the
nine years since the birth of Establishment Labs. When we embarked on our
journey, faced with the daunting task of challenging the status quo in a
well-established market and armed with a resolute belief in the power of
innovation, we set out to redefine the boundaries of women’s healthcare. We
have grown and now have a direct and indirect presence in 85 countries all
over the world, with distribution centers in Belgium and Brazil, a Women’s
Health Hub in Spain, and offices in multiple countries, all of which places us
well on track to transforming the lives of women worldwide.
All these achievements come as a promise to us and women all over the world
with The Motiva® Standard. This commitment has not only transformed
the lives of countless individuals, but has also paved the way for a more
equitable and compassionate healthcare landscape. It serves as a catalyst for
further advancements, empowering researchers, practitioners, and patients
alike to push boundaries and forge a path towards a healthier future.
From humble beginnings to healing an entire industry, our relentless pursuit
of excellence has reshaped the landscape of Women’s Health and well-being. As
we look to the future, let us embrace this achievement and remain inspired by
the possibilities that lie ahead. Together, we can continue to innovate,
collaborate, and place Women’s Health at the core of our everyday actions.
