Clinical Innovations Celebrates 25 Years of Improving the Lives of Mothers and Babies
SALT LAKE CITY, April 11, 2018 — One of the world’s leading medical device-makers focused solely on labor and delivery and the neonatal intensive care unit, Clinical Innovations, is celebrating 25 years of advancing health care for mothers and babies.
Formed in 1993 in Salt Lake City, Utah, the company today touches millions of families in more than 90 countries around the world and, through its dedication to product innovation and clinician training, is poised to accelerate its mission-driven work in the years ahead.
“Every member of our world-class team is driven by a shared commitment to improving care for patients,” said president and CEO Ken Reali. “Our dedication to the families we serve is what drives us, it’s part of who we are coupled with our commitment to innovation in our field. I could not be more proud of what we’ve accomplished together and look forward to continuing this important work as we expand into new areas of growth supporting mothers and babies.”
Clinical Innovations is a market-leader in several categories with a lineup of products used before, during and after delivery to obtain optimal health outcomes for mothers and babies. With products such as the ebb® Complete Tamponade System, the traxi® Panniculus Retractor and the babyLance safety heel stick device the company has swiftly responded to global health care trends.
More than 10 million of the company’s Kiwi® Vacuum Assisted Delivery System devices have been deployed worldwide, and Clinical Innovations products are found in more than 85 percent of hospitals in the U.S. and Western Europe. Doing business in North America, South America, Africa, Asia and Europe, the company has vastly grown its global footprint in recent years and expanded to underserved markets such as China and India.
Clinical Innovations is also an industry leader in clinician training, committing considerable resources to the ongoing education of the health care professionals who use its products. Those commitments have included an international educational outreach program, regularly updated instructional videos and the development of simulation programs in which clinicians, via their electronic device of choice, can step into a virtual operating room and practice the proper deployment of Clinical Innovations products. The simulators provide feedback and are designed to ensure that clinicians, when called upon, are not only competent but also comfortable and confident in using Clinical Innovations devices during high-stakes delivery situations.
Clinical Innovations is owned by EQT, a leading investment firm with approximately EUR 49 billion in raised capital across 26 funds. EQT is an active investor and owner in the health care sector, including investments in Certara, Press Ganey, Ottobock, Sivantos, and Lima Corporate.
