Baystate Health’s TechSpring to Ignite Healthcare Innovation, Economic Development

Representatives from companies that are developing new products to improve healthcare joined leaders from Baystate Health, the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center and elected officials today to celebrate the opening of TechSpring, Baystate Health’s technology innovation center based in Springfield’s emerging Innovation District.

TechSpring owes its existence in large part to a $5.5 million grant from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center, an investment agency charged with implementing Governor Patrick’s ten year, $1 billion Life Sciences Initiative that supports life sciences innovation, research, development and commercialization.
