Our team simultaneously invested in Medex, Inc., a provider of system solutions for critical care, to acquire the Jelco I.V. catheter business of Ethicon Endo-Surgery, a Johnson & Johnson company.  The combination transformed Medex into the market leader in fluid and drug delivery in critical care.  It also expanded the company’s global footprint and customer base.  Smiths Medical bought Medex in 2005 to strategically expand its safety critical systems and products.  Medex continues to be one of the world’s leading critical care companies.
