Our medical device firms produce and/or develop innovative products or technology for human or animal health.
The medical device industry is experiencing rapid growth in the Greater Kansas City Region. A recent survey conducted by KCALSI showed the growth has been 39% between 2009 and 2015 and we expect the Medical Device Network (MDN) to support further growth.
MDN was established eight years ago to bring together large established medical device companies as well as small and start-up companies.
MDN meetings are held on a quarterly basis to identify common areas of interest to the industry and problems commonly experienced by medical device companies. Using the wide range of experiences and resources, MDN works towards identifying best practices.
MDN includes companies of all sizes that manufacture and distribute medical device products, as well as consultants and other suppliers providing essential materials to the industry.
MDN member companies offer collaborative partnerships that provide consistent quality, efficiency, and reliability.
All MDN meeting participants are C-level executives or key decision makers in member companies.
Key industry support organizations like BioKansas, MOBIO, the Metropolitan Community College, and KCALSI are MDN members.
