Fujifilm today announced that it has moved its Medical Systems and New Development businesses to Lexington, Massachusetts, in a push to further advance its healthcare business and meet future industry challenges, Takaaki Ueda, president and CEO of Fujifilm Medical Systems, said in a statement to MedTech Boston.
“Boston is today an unparalleled global epicenter for medical research, and its excellence is reflected in the fact that the region has received more funding from the National Institutes of Health than any other city in every year over the past two decades,” he said. “The area is home to numerous pharmaceutical, life sciences and medical device companies and continues to attract top-tier organizations.”
The 28,000-square-foot facility will host customers, partners and global colleagues and facilitate collaboration among Fujifilm employees. The headquarters will be home to the Fujifilm Healthcare Customer Experience Center, which will offer product demonstrations, training and education to customers, employees and partners.
Ueda said presence in the Greater Boston area means better access to products and research. The move positions Fujifilm to work closer with its peers to develop more innovative medical devices and solutions that address the entire continuum of care.
“We will continue to offer new innovative technologies to meet clinical and business needs while improving patient care and outcomes,” he said.
The relocation will bring together Fujifilm’s various healthcare groups — digital radiography, women’s health, endoscopy, minimally invasive surgery and medical information technology — for the first time.
“This kind of collaboration is what spurs innovation and fuels our efforts to bring unparalleled new technologies to market,” Ueda said.
