Boston Scientific Statement on the Passing of Senator Edward Kennedy

NATICK, Mass., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ --

The statement below is from Pete Nicholas, Chairman of the Board of Boston Scientific Corporation, on behalf of the Company, its employees and its Board of Directors.

Senator Kennedy leaves a legacy of unprecedented accomplishment across a remarkably broad spectrum of issues. Foremost among them was his long and productive work on health care, a cause we shared with him.

He was a tireless advocate for patients' rights and for access to quality health care for all. Over the past half century, he was involved in the passage of virtually every piece of major health care legislation, from Medicare in the 1960s to the recent children's health insurance bill.

We were fortunate to have Senator Kennedy visit our facilities to learn about our products and technologies and to thank our employees for all they do to improve patients' lives.

We are profoundly grateful for the opportunity to have known him, to have worked with him and to have been inspired by him.

Our tribute - and pledge - to Senator Kennedy is to continue working relentlessly on behalf of patients, many of whom saw him as their most dedicated champion and for whom medical innovation offers the greatest hope for restored health.

We will miss Senator Kennedy very much.

We extend our deepest sympathies to his family.
