Invacare Joins Cleveland Medical Mart Project

Invacare Corp. will be part of a new healthcare-focused facility that will combine showrooms, tradeshow exhibit space and conference space in Cleveland.

Named the Cleveland Medical Mart, the project is due to open in 2013. Ground-breaking ceremonies took place last week.

The Medical Mart will include permanent showrooms that display healthcare technology from a number of medical fields, including cardiology, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, imaging, healthcare IT, medical devices and, of course, DME.

Due in part to the local concentration of prominent healthcare organizations, including the renowned Cleveland Clinic, Medical Mart officials say Cleveland is an ideal location for “the world’s only facility targeted specifically to the medical and healthcare industries.”

Mal Mixon, Invacare’s chairman of the board, said of the venture, “Invacare is the global leader in the home and long-term care industries. We are proud to be a healthcare company based in Cleveland, Ohio, and there is no better way to show our dedication to the city and the healthcare industry than to give our support to the Medical Mart.”
