West Michigan Highlights: Medical Industry and More

Several professionals gather around a laptop while text over them reads, "West Michigan is full of smart, talented people who are always willing to help out and collaborate."

 

Our team at MediSurge is proud to be a leading medical device manufacturer that positively impacts lives, and we are also proud to be based in West Michigan. With our facility in Grand Rapids and a team full of local talent, this area holds a special place in our heart.

To show our love for this region, we sat down with our team and came up with a few of our favorite things about West Michigan.

Medical Innovation Hub

West Michigan is home to Grand Rapids’ “Medical Mile,” which is a designated area of the city that is dedicated to healthcare research, innovation, and medical care. With numerous clinical, research, and academic institutions, this area has attracted medical professionals from around the world, and we are just a stone’s throw away.

There is constant innovation in West Michigan stemming from the Van Andel Institute, Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, Meijer Heart Center, Grand Valley State University’s Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences, Michigan State University’s College of Human Medicine and more. We are proud to be headquartered in an area that has such a deep commitment to bettering the world of healthcare, and we are proud to contribute to this cause.

Collaborative Spirit

West Michigan is full of smart, talented people who are always willing to help out and collaborate. Whether it is working with a research organization, educational institution, or large hospital, we have found no shortage of innovative minds that are willing to work together in order to improve patient care and the medical field as a whole.

World-Class Education

West Michigan is home to world-class schools like Grand Valley State University, Hope College, and Aquinas College, and has campuses for Michigan State University, Western Michigan University and more. Having nearby schools that foster the education of future engineers and medical professionals is key for the industry’s continued growth in the area.

This year we already have six Grand Valley State University students working with us as hands-on interns. We are grateful to be in an area that is home to so many great educational institutes.

Beer City, USA

We take our work very seriously, but at the end of the day our team likes to unwind and have fun. Being in West Michigan means we have direct access to Grand Rapids and all of the great local breweries that is has to offer. Whether we are going out as a team for a quick happy hour brainstorming session or meeting up with a customer to talk shop, it is always fun to grab a beer in Beer City, USA.

We love this area. That’s why we’re dedicated to giving back to our community and to creating jobs that support local talent. If you want to learn more about MediSurge and our capabilities or would like to connect over a beer at one of Grand Rapids’ many breweries, connect with us today!
