I have assembled an updated list of Pacific Northwest (mostly Puget Sound) medical device, diagnostics, service provider, and technology companies for the benefit of the local medical and biotechnology community. Also included here are companies headquartered elsewhere, but with research or manufacturing groups in our area. Publicly traded companies are in Bold. Hyperlinks will take you to the company Websites; no hyperlink means no Website. Please e-mail me any corrections or updates.

Most of the companies listed here are headquartered in the Puget Sound region, although the list also includes other WA State companies and a few in OR and Vancouver, BC.
