Innovation Center

The Inspira Health Innovation Center is an initiative designed to accelerate the development and implementation of leading edge, patient-focused products and technologies. This Center formally establishes the organization’s commitment to excellence, technology and transformation in healthcare across South Jersey. 

A 2,400-square-foot space has been built in the South Jersey Technology Park at Rowan University, across from the new Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill. The Innovation Center will house four collaboration spaces for brainstorming plus a fully functional patient room and “living room” area that you would be found in a patient’s home. These spaces will allow one to take their ideas, make them tactical and test them directly in the clinical environment.

Dave Johnson, Vice President of Innovation at Inspira, is the head of the Innovation Center and their initiatives. The offsite location near Rowan University provides the perfect creative environment needed for the Innovation Center.

“I wanted to be around people with an entrepreneurial mindset. I wanted to see what would be coming in and out of the South Jersey Technology Park, maybe collaborate with other companies and tap into students and faculty. We felt like being in proximity of the campus we’d be able to attract students to work with us and certainly faculty. We know that we’ll need research done with some of these projects. We want to be in the University setting for that reason.”
