HACKENSACK, N.J. – Hackensack University Medical Center has become the only health care Charter Member of the New Jersey Innovation Institute and a partner in its Healthcare Delivery Systems Innovation Lab.

“We are honored to have such a prominent research and teaching hospital partner with us in our efforts to develop innovative processes and programs for the health care industry across our region,” said Tomas Gregorio, senior executive director of health care delivery systems for the New Jersey Innovation Institute. “We will be working closely with Andrew L. Pecora, M.D., vice president, cancer services and chief innovations officer at John Theurer Cancer Center, HackensackUMC. Dr. Pecora is committed to developing novel ideas which promote open innovation and the use of tools and processes that encourage creative thinking.”

The institute applies the intellectual and technological resources of the state’s science and technology university to challenges identified by industry partners. Through its innovation lab, the institute brings expertise to key economic sectors, including health care delivery systems, bio-pharmaceutical production, civil infrastructure, defense and homeland security, and financial services.

“HackensackUMC is pleased to partner with NJIT on this important initiative,” said Robert Garrett, president and CEO of the Hackensack University Health Network. “Our medical center has always been committed to partnering with other organizations who share in our mission of developing research and technology to better care for our patients. Through this iLab, we will be able to combine our collective resources to make meaningful advances in care."
