Business Review Australia, Barry Thomas of Cook Medical Explains How the Company's Culture of Development and Integrity Creates Innovative Research and Medical Devices
SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - May 3, 2012) - Since its inception in 1963, Cook Medical has built its business on the philosophy of making the right decision based on the patient rather than on financial concerns. Bill Cook started the company by building relationships with physicians and developing their ideas into medical devices that have provided good patient outcomes over many years. Over 49 years later, the company has grown from building devices out of a two bedroom unit in Bloomington, Indiana to a global leader in the medical research and manufacture of medical devices and supplies. This growth is due to Cook Medical's focus on creating the highest quality products for patients and physicians.
Today, Cook Medical's devices are manufactured and distributed to over 130 countries worldwide. These products apply to patient needs in endovascular therapy, critical care medicine, general surgery, diagnostic and interventional procedures, bioengineered tissue replacement and regeneration, gastroenterology and endoscopy procedures, urology, and obstetrics and gynecology.
Barry Thomas, Vice President and Director of Cook Medical, Asia Pacific, a manufacturing and distributing subsidiary of Cook Medical explains that it is the company's versatility, entrepreneurial spirit, and patient-centred focus that makes it exceptional. Cook Medical has a culture of ingenuity that constantly looks for ways to take ideas to commercialisation as well as develop existing products. This Asia Pacific subsidiary has a facility in Brisbane that focuses on developing new products as well as manufacturing and distributing existing Cook products. A recent major innovation by the facility has been the development of an endovascular stent graft technology to treat aortic aneurysm disease.
