Creating an Elite Health City for the New Health Care Economy

HealthForward is a key initiative of the Detroit Regional Chamber’s Forward Detroit strategy focused on creating a more competitive region by driving a healthier community and developing the region as a major hub for health innovation.

People are the center of health. HealthForward aims to use the Detroit region’s unique transition moment as an opportunity to reshape communities by designing a healthier, more compelling and more productive environment to live, work and play.

The Detroit region is fortunate to have a superior health care innovation base, including several nationally recognized hospitals, world renowned universities, research centers and medical schools as well as a dynamic purchaser community along with a vibrant cross-border collaboration with Canada. HealthForward aims to leverage these assets along with a growing entrepreneurial ecosystem to drive health innovation for the new health care economy.

HealthForward is focused on making certain Detroit is at the forefront as health care changes and people change the way they engage in health.
