University Hospitals & Philips Healthcare to showcase imaging technology at Cleveland Medical Mart

University Hospitals (UH) and Philips Healthcare are among a group of global leaders in healthcare to showcase the latest medical technology at the new Cleveland Medical Mart & Convention Center. The two organizations will collaborate to highlight innovative imaging technology in use and in development by Philips and other Ohio biomedical companies.

Scheduled to open in July 2013, the $465 million Cleveland Medical Mart & Convention Center is a one million-square-foot campus located in the heart of downtown Cleveland. The space occupied by UH and Philips will anchor the building's third floor, which is dedicated to "clinical spaces."

The showcase at the Cleveland Medical Mart is an outgrowth of the Philips Healthcare Global Advanced Imaging Innovation Center, a collaboration between Philips and UH, along with Case Western Reserve University, which brings together scientists and physicians to test and evaluate new imaging technologies. Through the $38.5 million Center, established in 2010, the latest Philips Healthcare imaging equipment is brought to UH Case Medical Center for development, validation of clinical efficacy and product release.

"The Medical Mart showcase will further establish Cleveland as an international hub for imaging technology by highlighting the latest equipment that we have co-developed with Philips right here in Northeast Ohio," said Thomas F. Zenty III, CEO of University Hospitals. "The synergy between our organizations has created a pipeline to move innovative technologies more quickly into patient care.

We look forward to showcasing the important work that has come out of the Philips Healthcare Global Advanced Imaging Innovation Center to the Cleveland Medical Mart's visitors, while enhancing the rich heritage and distinctive capability of Northeast Ohio healthcare."

The Department of Radiology at UH Case Medical Center and Case Western Reserve University, led by Pablo Ros, MD, Professor and Chairman, is home to a number of the nation's leaders in radiology who partner with Philips, which has one of its North American largest manufacturing headquarters in Cleveland. The announcement comes in conjunction with the Radiological Society of North America annual meeting in Chicago, where Philips will display some of the equipment that will be in the Cleveland Medical Mart showcase.

"We are very excited to join the Cleveland Medical Mart with our partners at the nationally renowned University Hospitals Case Medical Center," said Dominic Smith, Vice President, Global Computed Tomography at Philips. "Our company aspires to assist clinicians by providing breakthrough imaging technologies that today are not yet possible. The Philips Healthcare Global Advanced Imaging Innovation Center has helped us realize these objectives and in the process, help improve the healthcare of patients in Ohio and throughout the world."

The four-story Cleveland Medical Mart will serve health and health care innovation, education, and commerce through state-of-the-art spaces, programs, and virtual offerings while building on and enhancing the rich heritage and distinctive capability of Northeast Ohio healthcare. Visitors will come to see state-of-the-art medical technologies in use, without having to go into the care or research setting itself.

"Congratulations to both University Hospitals Case Medical Center and Philips Healthcare for being the first Medical Mart collaborative partnership between a commercial enterprise and a leading healthcare provider," said Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald. "This is yet another positive and visible step forward for the Cleveland Medical Mart project."
