Breast and Skeletal Health Solutions

Our Breast and Skeletal Health Solutions division offers products that enable early detection, more certain diagnosis and, when necessary, accurate and compassionate treatment.

We also continue to take skeletal health assessments to new heights – using market leading technology to assess three critical health problems – osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease and obesity.

Diagnostics Solutions

Our Diagnostic Solutions division delivers market-leading, clinically differentiated assays and instrumentation for molecular, perinatal and cytology testing.

As the leader in cytology and molecular diagnostic solutions for more than 30 years, Hologic’s proven solutions deliver better outcomes through prevention of cervical cancer and the detection of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), as well as enable labs to achieve higher productivity.

GYN Surgical Solutions

Our GYN Surgical Solutions division offers a suite of minimally invasive treatment options for women facing gynecologic conditions that affect uterine health and well-being. With over 10 years of clinical data to support the effectiveness of our gynecological solutions, Hologic is a leader in treating abnormal uterine bleeding in both the office and hospital settings.

Medical Aesthetics

Our Medical Aesthetics division offers best-in-class, energy-based technologies that deliver a range of benefits that impact health, wellness and quality of life — from body contouring and skin revitalization to hair removal and restoring women’s vaginal health.

We look for people seeking to make a difference in people’s lives – a big, positive, difference that helps people get healthy, stay healthy and enjoy life more.  

Because the difference we can make in the world starts within our walls, we create a culture that encourages each person to apply the best of his or her talents, and we know that exceptional results will follow.  

At Hologic, we maximize our impact with powerful, thoughtful employee experiences to build an environment where people can thrive, foster a sense of community and do their best work. 

The truth is, we’re not interested in only knowing what you bring to the table — your past experiences and accomplishments, your education, the results you’ve achieved. We also want to know what legacy you want to build with us — and how we can help you succeed. Our future, after all, depends on everyone at Hologic.    

Want to help us make a difference? Let’s talk.

    I have been working at Hologic full-time (More than a year)


    The work experience really depends on the team you are working with. I had the opportunity to work with a very supportive and passionate team who cares deeply about the team and department goals. It is great to have upper management who understands the difficulties of particular projects and assign additional support where necessary to help complete our tasks.


    At a smaller branch, there are definitely constraints with budget, work space, and time. Sometimes you would have to switch gears and drop projects, but that's understandable in any company to have priorities.
