Ethics and compliance

The way we do business

The family of companies under Cook Group have a shared goal of empowering our employees, customers, and communities. Our Cook Group Global Ethics & Compliance Program grew from founder Bill Cook’s strong belief that you should treat others the way you would like to be treated. In fact, everything we have done since day one has been based on one simple thought: Do the right thing.

When the company got too big for Bill to explain his philosophy to everyone in person, he wrote it down. These days, we have an active Ethics & Compliance team and a program that will carry the company culture on to future generations of employees.

How we approach our most valuable relationships


The physician–patient relationship is sacred. This relationship should be supported but not interfered with. We have a responsibility to protect the patient’s right to quality care, access to information, and privacy.


We believe customers deserve a strong partner who treats them fairly and honestly. This applies to physicians, distribution partners, and supply chain customers.


We work openly, honestly, and transparently with government agencies. We are not afraid to speak up when we think something should be done differently in the interest of patients and progress.


Being a strong community partner is good for the local community, good for local business, and good for our own employees. We contribute more than money; we give time, leadership, and ideas.

Each other

We are driven by personalities and passion, not egos. We treat our employees like adults and ask that everyone at Cook accept responsibility for their own successes and failures.

Code of conduct

All employees of Cook Medical strictly adhere to our code of conduct. Whether we serve patients, physicians, customers, or colleagues, we all share a culture and set of core values. Regardless of our location, the expectation that we, as Cook employees, reflect Cook’s values in our daily business activities applies to each one of us.
