Healthcare is a dynamic, ever-changing industry. Doctors and researchers who continuously question traditional care methods and industry norms have fueled pioneering breakthroughs in medicine and treatment practices. Emerging Healthcare Collaborative wants to be on the frontline of this rapid medical innovation. As a New Orleans nonprofit, EHC has witnessed our city cultivate a thriving medical scene. The goal of Emerging Healthcare Collaborative is to nourish and grow the local medical industry into a leader in healthcare entrepreneurship and innovation for patients throughout the country.

Our Mission and Vision

Emerging Healthcare Collaborative connects medical innovators with investors and equips both with the knowledge and experience necessary to bring medical advances to market and expand the services and quality of healthcare in New Orleans. Both medical innovators and investors are passionate about improving their community, but often they don’t have the proper tools or industry-specific knowledge to confidently work with one another. Emerging Healthcare Collaborative bridges the gap between innovation and investment to create a healthier community for all.
