BIV Article and Video: Health Tech Innovation Hub Opening
June 2, 2015
A glance out of the second-storey window of the Health Tech Innovation Hub reveals a dozen or so doctors and nurses dressed in scrubs, heading across the street from Surrey Memorial Hospital (SMH).
Some are bound for the Starbucks in the hub’s foyer, while others have their sights on the hub itself.
The hub, which officially opened April 9 and is part of Surrey’s Innovation Boulevard project, is drawing entrepreneurs and researchers from across the region to set up offices and work with clinicians to development new technologies for the health sector.
Conquer Mobile, which develops training simulations for nurses in the operating room, relocated from its Vancouver headquarters to the innovation hub at the beginning of April.
