Ciba Health opening a new office in Canada
Ciba Health is announcing the opening of a new office in Edmonton as the next step in the company’s global expansion. Supported by Alberta Innovates and Edmonton Global to launch operations in Edmonton, AB, Ciba Health will be bringing expertise in digital therapeutics, AI and chronic disease reversal to the region. It will enhance the growth of the Edmonton health and life science sector, strengthen Canada’s tech ecosystem, and help serve patients dealing with type 2 diabetes.
“We are very excited to welcome Ciba Health into the Edmonton Metropolitan Region. Ciba Health will bring new innovations to our health and life sciences sector — an extremely valuable addition to our strong and growing ecosystem.” said Malcolm Bruce, CEO of Edmonton Global. “We have world-class facilities like the Alberta Diabetes Institute to support diabetes research and precision health, and Ciba Health will help this industry thrive, lower hospital visits, and get Canadians the care they need. We look forward to what contributions will come from Ciba Health’s leadership in the Edmonton region.”
Utilizing artificial intelligence for predictive medicine, Ciba Health has chosen the Edmonton region due to its well-developed health and life science sector with plenty of room for growth within North America. The company aims to hire from 15 to 20 employees in the first year in Alberta and double the size of the team in the second year of operations. This investment will play a role in reduced hospital visits and increased R&D opportunities for life sciences. Ciba Health plans to initially be located at the Health Innovation Hub.
“We are excited to continue our global expansion in Canada, particularly in Edmonton, Alberta. We definitely see the need for our solutions, especially the Type 2 Diabetes Reversal and the Prediabetes, Obesity & Weight Loss Programs.” shared Ciba Health’s CEO Dr. Innocent Clement. “We truly believe that our innovative product will improve quality of life, enhance healthcare, and empower the fight against chronic diseases in a much more efficient way. We are happy to be able to count on partners such as Edmonton Global, Alberta Innovates, and Plug and Play Alberta to continue our journey and be part of such a welcoming and innovative ecosystem.”
Alberta Innovates, Plug and Play Alberta and Edmonton Global have been working to support Ciba Health’s expansion plans by providing insights about the local business landscape and making valuable introductions to service providers and partners.
