Gov. Wolf continues 'Jobs that Pay' tour at regenerative medicine facility in Pittsburgh

Governor Tom Wolf was in Pittsburgh Monday to tour and meet with employees of Cook MyoSite, a leading medical manufacturer that specializes in the collection, selection and expansion of human skeletal cells for the treatment of various disorders.

After his tour of the recently expanded, two-facility site of 64 new jobs, bringing its complement to more than 130 jobs, Gov. Wolf sat down with employees to ask them a question which he most eagerly wanted to know the answer to- what drew them to work for such a company in Pittsburgh?

“What’s important to you to make places like this work so well?” asked Wolf.
