Our businesses

Medical devices

The Cook family business started with needles, wire guides, and catheters — a simple set of tools for physicians to use in the vascular system. The core Cook Medical business has grown to offer products for minimally invasive treatments across almost every system of the body, in nearly all areas of the hospital, and around the globe.

Life sciences

These Cook companies explore treatments outside our core medical device business and help other medical device companies bring products to market with testing, regulatory, and clinical trial services.


The Cook Family Health Center supports the healthcare needs of Cook employees in our headquarters community. K-Tube provides stainless steel tubing for Cook Medical’s devices but also serves other companies and industries. In addition to supporting Cook business travel needs, Cook Aviation offers its airport services commercially.

Property management

The Cook family’s passion for historic buildings blends well with their recognition that attractive, architecturally significant buildings help communities and residents thrive. They founded CFC Properties in 1973 to help manage their restoration projects and their residential and commercial properties.


This line of businesses formed when the Cook family became involved in the restoration of a pair of historic hotels in French Lick and West Baden, Indiana. Later, the Canton Harvester Inn was built in Bill’s hometown to support the community and manufacturing facilities we opened there. Bill and Gayle’s passion for rescuing historic structures by restoring and repurposing them is well-known in many of the communities where we are located.
