Fujifilm has moved its medical device headquarters out of Stamford in favor of Lexington, Massachusetts. The move consolidates Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. – provider of diagnostic imaging, endoscopic imaging and medical informatics solutions – and Fujifilm New Development U.S.A., a provider of minimally invasive surgical solutions.
The relocation marks the first time Fujifilm’s various health care groups – computed tomography, digital radiography, women’s health, endoscopy, minimally invasive surgery and medical IT – will be based in a single location.
The move to the 28,000-square-foot facility in Lexington signifies what the firm called “a major strategic step” in its plan to further advance its position in the medical device and IT industries, as well as the health care field at large.
“Placing our health care resources under one roof was a strategic move to foster close collaboration across various business units and enable us to improve the customer experience,” said Takaaki Ueda, president and CEO of Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. and Fujifilm New Development U.S.A. “This kind of collaboration is what spurs innovation and fuels our efforts to bring unparalleled new technologies to market and address pressing clinical and business needs while raising the standard of care and improving patient outcomes.”
In addition to the now-closed Stamford facility at 419 West Ave. and its new Massachusetts location, Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. has satellite offices in Valhalla, New York; Morrisville, North Carolina; Wayne, New Jersey; and Milwaukee.
