Welcoming the future: our mission and values lead us to new heights

Over the decades, as a family-owned, global company, Cook has been uniquely positioned in the medical device and technology industry to make a difference in healthcare for patients across many specialties of medicine. Product innovation has been the backbone of our evolution.

As we step into the future as a more modern and efficient company, our business strategy drives everything we do, from how we think about the future of healthcare and patient well-being to product innovation.

We have a firm commitment to our mission and values.

Living our mission

Every word in our mission is relevant, but several key words from our mission contribute significantly to our business strategy.

We invent, manufacture, and deliver a unique portfolio of medical devices to the healthcare systems of the world. Serving patients is a privilege, and we demand the highest standards of quality, ethics, and service in all that we do.

Embracing our values

“How we do our business, what processes we use, and what technologies we use, of course those will continue to change, but our core values will stay the same.”
–Pete Yonkman, President of Cook Medical and Cook Group

We remain rooted in our values as a family-owned company. Treating everyone with respect is so important to Cook that we made it one of our company values. We recognize that strength lies in a diverse workforce, and an inclusive culture is essential for our future. Learn more about our Diversity & Inclusion team and mission and our position against racism.

We pride ourselves in our ability to solve problems together, which is another important Cook value that supports our company culture of innovation and product growth. Here are just a few ways Cook has identified a need and then created a solution.

  • Adapting to new virtual learning environments by developing a high-tech studio at our corporate headquarters in Bloomington
  • Developing ways to manage the new healthcare systems of the world to effectively communicate with not just the physician, but the entire supply chain
  • Identifying product needs for patients in untapped clinical areas
