Cook Medical Applauds Congressional Action to Repeal the Medical Device Excise Tax

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 24 dicembre 2019

Cook Medical applauds the successful efforts of legislators from the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives to repeal the medical device excise tax. “Repealing the medical device tax will help bring new life-saving devices to patients around the world,” said Steve Ferguson, chairman of Cook Group, Cook Medical’s parent company. “We are grateful to our elected officials for this significant action to support patients who rely on medical technology.” After years of suspension, the tax was scheduled to be reinstated on January 1, 2020. Repeal of the tax prevents a negative impact on patient care, the evolution of healthcare and associated costs.“Repealing the tax also provides long-term assurance necessary for medical technology companies to continue investing in their employees and the research and development projects that lead to innovative new therapies for patients who need it most,” said Jennifer Kerr, president of Cook Research, and Medical Device Manufacturing Association board member.The medical technology industry employs more than two million people directly and indirectly across the United States. Cook Medical employs more than 7,000 people in the U.S. and 10,000 globally.

A Decade of Innovation and Growth: Cook Korea 10th Anniversary

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 30 ottobre 2019

Cook Medical celebrated its 10-year anniversary with a special event that marked a major milestone – a decade of successful customer service, innovation and employee development.
Back in 2000, Cook Korea first opened in the country as a distributor partner, before progressing to direct sales in a gradual transition. The Cook Korea company as we now know it was established in 2009. Ten years later, the company is now well known for its ability to serve patients better through direct interactions with physicians.Pete Yonkman, President, Cook Group and Cook Medical, said during the anniversary celebration, “We are incredibly proud of our office in Korea. The team here is committed to patients and to providing customers in Korea with the medical devices they need. They have fully embraced our company values, by engaging with their local community, encouraging their employee development, and working together to overcome the challenges that face medical device companies everywhere. I look forward to seeing what this team is capable of over the next ten years and beyond.” Cook Korea covers a wide range of business lines including reproductive health, urology, endoscopy and interventional radiology. It was the first medical device company in Korea to implement Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology across consignment locations for all products. This advanced technology provides an efficient and accurate solution to count large volumes with greater traceability and better inventory management.When the company started its sales and operations in 2010, there were only 20 people. Now there are 80 based in Seoul to support the fast-growing business with more than 1,100 products and over 40 product family lines across Korea. The company’s patient first culture has transparent communication at its foundation. Employee development is a crucial part to foster such culture that includes language training, to clinical, professional and educational studies.Due to an expansion, Cook Korea moved offices in 2015 in order to fully cater for its employee’s lifestyle needs. The office creates an environment where personal wellbeing is embraced. This included recreation areas, nursing rooms, and panoramic views of Youido.Giving back is an important part of Cook Medical culture across the globe including Korea. The organization supports the community through a variety of fund-raising and volunteer activities. For example, they organize regular volunteering work for employees to take care of orphan babies at the Eastern Social Welfare Association before their adoption. They also raise funds through in-house cafe and gift donation during the holiday season.

Do you cook English?

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 16 giugno 2009

Comincia a tavola la scoperta della cultura di un Paese. E per sapere tutto della terra dei Lords Renata Beltrami e Silvia Mazzola hanno pubblicato per i tipi Mursia la guida turistico-gastronomica “Londra e contorni. Piatti, percorsi e parole alla scoperta della Gran Bretagna” (collana “Golosia”, pp. 248, euro 18,00). Dopo aver insegnato a masticare l’inglese con “La lingua nel piatto” (2006) e inaugurato il genere della Kitchen Lit con il romanzo “Mangiamore” (2007), le due scrittrici italiane da anni residenti a Londra tornano a parlare della loro patria d’adozione attraverso la cucina made in England. Questa guida mescola storia, luoghi, lingua e sapori in un originale menu di viaggio. Le parole del cibo diventano una palestra per migliorare la lingua parlata, ristoranti e pub l’occasione per ripercorrere la storia britannica. Dalle torte da tè allo zafferano della Cornovaglia, ai gelati di Margate e Ramsgate, passando per un welsh rabbit gustato nella City di Londra, ogni viaggiatore può costruire il suo itinerario e un gustoso corso di lingua. Per il carnevale di Notting Hill non si può perdere il Grilled pineapple with sweet chilli syrup and brandy snaps, un dolce piccante come i costumi delle creole che qui sfilano come a Rio. Ingredienti: 1 ananas, 1 peperoncino rosso, 75 gr di zucchero, 100 ml di acqua. A Greenwich le ricette sono astronomiche. Specialità della casa è il salmone in tutte le varianti, ad esempio salmon and eggs con toast: uova strapazzate, una macinata di pepe e pane integrale morbido appena tostato.  Oltre alla lingua inglese “Londra e contorni” insegna a non disprezzare la cucina britannica. Alla fine della lettura si scoprirà che si può andare in Cornovaglia per i suoi granchi come ad Amalfi per i suoi limoni, e che vacanza non è solo la campagna toscana con i suoi sapori ma anche la campagna inglese contemplata davanti a un bicchiere di sidro e a un paté di selvaggina preparato dalla signora del pub.
Renata Beltrami è originaria di Milano, dove ha iniziato a lavorare come insegnante e giornalista dopo aver studiato Lingue e Letterature moderne. Vive a Londra con il marito e i figli.  Silvia Mazzola, milanese, filosofa e storica dell’arte, da anni è impegnata nel campo del turismo e dell’arte europea. Vive da più di vent’anni a Londra con le due figlie e il marito di origine inglese.
