Health Tech Innovation Hub launched

SURREY – From surgical training apps to airbags for wheelchairs, the Health Tech Innovation Hub lived up to its name during the official launch on April 9. CEO and former mayor Dianne Watts cut the ribbon to open the hub, situated across from Surrey Memorial Hospital, making it the latest venture to join Innovation Boulevard.

 

The hub is home to medical experts and entrepreneurs in the health tech field, and its goal is to provide opportunities for inventors, entrepreneurs and companies to work and practice alongside healthcare providers and clinicians.

 

Innovation Boulevard was founded by the City of Surrey, SFU and Surrey Memorial Hospital with the goal of creating new health technologies to improve patient care and provide access to stateof-the-art equipment. Its current focuses are medical technologies, independent living technologies and digital health technologies.

 

The hub is located in City Centre 1 at 13737 96th Ave. Visit Htifoundation.com.
