Building MedTech Synergies at Olympus’ World-Class Corporate Campus
Dozens of attendees pulled up in a touring bus to the Olympus Westborough campus in mid-October, to learn the Massachusetts approach to medtech ecosystems. The tour, coordinated by MetroWest Life Sciences Network (Boston, Mass.) and medtech company Olympus (Westborough, Mass.) included dignitaries such as vice-presidents and managers from medtech companies in the European Union, Asia and South America , with a focus on the technology and innovation that the company offers the region.
Opened in April 2021, the Westborough campus serves as the Americas headquarters for Olympus’ medical business and the global headquarters for its Therapeutic Solutions Division. Event participants had the opportunity to tour the Olympus OR Innovation Center, a fully integrated operating room showroom, and Continuum Training and Education Center with wetlab, where hands-on learning opportunities can help healthcare providers strengthen procedural skills, enhance outcomes, and uphold the highest levels of patient care. Touring dignitaries reported being impressed with the amenity-rich office setting, with onsite café, fitness center, health rooms, mother’s rooms, full service day care center, walking paths, locker rooms and access to biking trails.
“Quality workplace offerings are important during a tight labor market,” said Paul Joseph, Chair of Natick Select Board. “The workforce development initiatives, world-class companies, universities bringing us talent streams – these are all converging at a place like this Olympus facility. And this will translate to unbeatable value for the economy and the community.”
“Olympus is committed to the world-class skills and connections that will drive our business and help bring our value where it’s needed,” said Richard Reynolds, Olympus Medical Systems Group president. “We’re grateful to MetroWest Life Sciences Network for organizing this event. We want to thank the attendees for their interest in taking the time to get a glimpse of all that goes into reaching goals of elevating the standard of care.”
