Our purpose

Who we are, what we do and why we come to work each day.

Our purpose is to turn great ideas into positive health impact

We believe that health is improved by great ideas, but great ideas only make an impact when they are put into practice. Our health is too important to leave change to chance.

Citizens, academia, health services and industry will achieve more working together than they will in isolation. Our job is to make this happen. We do this by helping innovators navigate complex systems, generate value propositions and convene stakeholders to overcome challenges together.

The Eastern region is home to the largest health and life sciences cluster outside the US and some of the most brilliant health and care practitioners in the world. We want our region to benefit from both, creating better health outcomes and more prosperity.
