Governor Wolf and his team from Harrisburg visited Smithwise at our Philadelphia location. There is strong interest from the State in building innovative companies that will drive job growth for local communities. Governor Wolf recognized the work taking place at Smithwise and our local clients as being a vital part of the innovation ecosystem in Pennsylvania.
During Governor Wolf’s visit, we discussed Towerview Health’s medication management platform, ZSX Medical’s laparoscopic surgical device, and Active Protective’s wearable airbag hip protection system.
We look forward to continued support from Governor Wolf in expanding health technology in PA.
