Ocala Health Center for Health Services Innovation Opens
Further, through the Incubator’s association with the Ocala/Marion County Chamber & Economic Partnership, each of the companies in the new facility have been able to connect with local healthcare companies (hospitals, medical providers, etc.) to further accelerate their growth.
While the Incubator’s first building included several of these healthcare companies, this new center has allowed them to both attract more and to centralize all of them in one building. Because of this clustering, they are now able to provide more targeted programming and other resources to help these healthcare startups with their unique needs.
The establishment of this Center was made possible through partnerships with the city of Ocala, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development Department and the Ocala/Marion County Chamber & Economic Partnership.
In addition to Ocala Health’s sponsorship of the building, rooms inside the Center were sponsored by Ron and Phyllis Ewers, Center State Bank and the Center for Comprehensive Palliative Care.
Residents in the Ocala Health Center for Health Services Innovation include QuadNurse, Greater Mobility and Supportive Connections.The Center is located 303 SE Osceola Avenue.
