MassMEDIC Celebrates Second Record Year in Row with Release of Annual Report

Largest regionally based medical device trade association in the U.S. secures ARPA-H Investor Catalyst Hub in Cambridge, shows unparalleled member value

The Massachusetts Medical Device Industry Council (MassMEDIC) is proud to announce another record-breaking year for the organization in 2023. MassMEDIC grew its membership and revenue while advocating for its nearly 400 members on Beacon Hill and Capital Hill.

“Our big win this year for our members was securing the Investor Catalyst Hub for ARPA-H here in Massachusetts,” said MassMEDIC President, Brian Johnson. “The Hub will work with researchers, entrepreneurs, and financiers to speed the transition of basic research into new technologies and medicines.”

In addition to government affairs and workforce development services, MassMEDIC provides business connections, regulatory guidance, membership discounts, promotional opportunities and virtual and in person educational and networking events.

“Our industry continues to persevere and grow in Massachusetts, and it remains vital across the globe,” said Brian Johnson. “We are home to the largest concentration of workers employed in manufacturing medical technology, meaning we’re not only developing the technologies of tomorrow, we’re making it here as well. Massachusetts is truly the heart of healthtech.”

To celebrate these achievements, the organization is publishing a full year in review and annual report, which can be downloaded here:
