About Westmed

Westmed is a vertically integrated medical device manufacturing company. We develop, manufacture and market both disposable and reusable anesthesia and respiratory medical devices. Established in 1992, Westmed has experienced consistent growth since its inception by understanding and addressing the changing needs of the healthcare industry.  

In 1997 Westmed acquired the patented HEART® continuous nebulizers line from Vortran Medical Technologies. Westmed soon thereafter acquired the assets of Medtrac Technologies, a leader in developing and manufacturing electronic drug compliance and outcomes monitors for respiratory medication delivery systems. These acquisitions positioned Westmed for continued growth and established Westmed as a product leader in the respiratory market.

In 2002 Westmed acquired the assets of Owens-Brigham Medical Company, a diversified manufacturer of anesthesia disposables. This expanded Westmed’s product portfolio to include heated humidification, heated respiratory circuits, arterial blood gas kits, anesthesia circuits, masks and other disposables. This acquisition allowed Westmed to serve both the respiratory and the anesthesia markets.

Today, Westmed employs over 500 people worldwide. Our manufacturing, administration and customer service operations are located in Tucson, Arizona. Additionally, we have two manufacturing facilities located in Mexico, one in Nogales, Sonora and the other in Tecate, Baja California.
