Health and Biotechnology Award
Since 1963, Cook Medical has worked closely with physicians to develop technologies that eliminate the need for open surgery.
Today, the company is combining medical devices, biologic materials and cellular therapies to help the world’s healthcare systems deliver better outcomes more efficiently. Cook Medical has always remained family-owned, retaining the freedom to focus on patients, employees and communities.
Cook Medical Australia manufactures some of the world’s most advanced endovascular grafts for the treatment of aortic aneurysms, and is one of the few companies in the world that custom-makes these products to fit individual patient anatomies. The company is also recognised as a leader in reproductive health, developing and manufacturing products used in the IVF process.
2017 and 2018 have been transformative years, with the company increasing operational efficiencies to expand manufacturing, export capacity and employment opportunities. In 2018, Cook Medical Australia made 2 key investments: to expand manufacturing capacity to meet export demand, and to establish the Australia Research Council Research Hub for the Advanced Manufacturing of Medical Devices.
