Our people are the pulse of our company

The CCS team raises the bar.

For medical centers and surgeons who are searching for a high-quality perfusion and autotransfusion service provider, as well as for perfusionists and other medical professionals who are searching for a rewarding company to work with, there are a number of reasons to choose CCS.

In a recent episode of Jason A. Duprat’s Healthcare Entrepreneur Academy podcast our President, Chet Czaplicka, discusses his experience leading CCS to becoming one of the largest perfusion companies in the world. He discusses the importance of learning from mistakes, taking risks, and how to manage negotiations and acquisitions in the always evolving world of healthcare. Chet reiterates the importance of wearing multiple hats as an entrepreneur, while also understanding his own limitations; Hiring a team of the right people with the expertise and reliability he can depend on, and clients can depend on is the key to CCS’s success. To hear more about our president, Chet, and about CCS you can listen to the full Healthcare Entrepreneur Academy episode on Apple Podcasts , Spotify, or Jason’s website.
