Given the shared purpose and complementary assets, this partnership will help catalyze the new frontier in healthcare innovation that’s in front of us all. With our unified approach that also engages our cross-border partners in Ontario, I’m beyond excited about our opportunity to accelerate the implementation of transformative solutions for the ultimate benefit of our communities.”
“The opportunity to bring the ScaleHealth ecosystem to the Detroit/Windsor-Essex area and, in turn, bring the region’s amazing healthcare innovators from MedHealth, TechTown, WeTech-Alliance and others to the world, is a true embodiment of our vision and mission,” said Taylor McPartland, CEO of ScaleHealth. “Through this partnership, we’re looking forward to continuing to build bridges and connect dots to ensure that health innovators have access to all of the resources they need to succeed and have a lasting impact on our communities.”
MedHealth Program Manager Stacey Frankovich will manage the efforts in Detroit. Frankovich said, “The partnership with MedHealth and ScaleHealth will open up additional opportunities for healthcare technologies to scale and grow through shared, critical connections in an effort to affect positive change in patient care.”
