Andau Medical is named after the Bridge at Andau which connects Hungary and Austria. Many families were able to escape over this bridge in 1956 during the Hungarian Revolution to seek refuge and safety, including Sandi Wright’s family. This historically significant bridge, which also inspired a novel titled “The Bridge at Andau” by James A. Michener, was destroyed in November 1956, just one day after Sandi’s family crossed safely. The bridge was rebuilt in 1996 as a symbol of tolerance and helpfulness.
Symbolically, Andau Medical was established under this name to signify the building of bridges between clinical needs and technologies. We offer our clinicians a bridge to some of the best technologies in the world offered by our innovative manufacturing partners, by way of our knowledgeable and service-oriented sales team. The bridges we build lead to exceptional patient care and enhanced outcomes at a sustainable price-point for the healthcare system.
