ROCKVILLE, Md., July 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BioHealth Innovation, Inc. (BHI), a regional private-public partnership focusing on commercializing market-relevant biohealth innovations and increasing access to early-stage funding in Central Maryland, announced today that it has located its corporate headquarters in the historic Wire Hardware Building at 22 Baltimore Road in Rockville. BHI also announced the creation of two new staff positions filled by recent hires Ethan Byler as Director of Innovation Programs and Amanda Wilson as Operations Manager.

"Choosing the historic Wire Hardware Building as operational headquarters for BHI is symbolic of the marrying of the deep roots of this region with the untapped potential for truly inspirational advancement of the biohealth industry here, which is a primary goal of BHI," said Richard Bendis, BioHealth Innovation, Inc. President & Chief Executive Officer. "Opening our new offices in Montgomery County and welcoming our new staff are key steps to ensuring the success of BHI and demonstrate our firm commitment to Central Maryland."

Along with its headquarters offices in Rockville, BHI will conduct operations from Baltimore in offices it shares with the Economic Alliance of Greater Baltimore (EAGB), which is located in the heart of downtown Baltimore.  In June 2012, EAGB announced it will serve as Greater Baltimore's primary business partner with BHI. The two organizations will work together in implementing BHI's Central Maryland Health-Regional Innovation Cluster (H-RIC). From its two offices in Rockville and Baltimore, BHI can easily serve constituents and engage with partners across Central Maryland.

About BHI's New Rockville Headquarters: The Wire Hardware Building

The historic Wire Hardware Building dates back to the downtown area of Rockville in the late 19th century. This two-story brick building features the last cast-iron front remaining in the city. The building itself represents how Rockville grew along with the B&O Railroad and the railroad's depot, which was located across the street. Following ownership changing hands multiple times since the original construction in 1897, restoration began on this Maryland landmark in the 1990's and now has been converted for office use.
