Anthem Surgical was founded by Jacob Gary Cooper, a United States Air Force veteran. Originally stationed at Lachlan AFB and Shepard AFB for aircraft mechanic training, he then pursued his career as a Crew Chief for C47’s and C54’s, for NASA test planes at Kirkland AFB, and for 0-1 Birdog aircrafts and Caribou cargo planes in Vietnam in 1966.
His combined years of experience serving nationally and internationally has allowed him to understand the value and need for organization and functional instrumentation globally.
Anthem Surgical was created to provide superior on-site surgical instrument repairs to all federal and state agencies and most especially the Veterans Administration. Bringing all Veterans Administration hospitals and medical centers compliant with the mandate to track individual instrumentation is of premier importance to Anthem Surgical.
