GDAHA and Kaleidoscope created Ascend after evaluating what these unique regional assets could make possible for the health care of tomorrow.
“Since the days of the Wright brothers, Dayton has been a center for innovation,” said Jeff Journey, Ascend’s managing director. “It was here that humans first mastered the science of flight. With this new collaboration, Dayton will develop solutions to solve challenging problems and advance the science of health.”
New products, technologies and services developed at Ascend will make health care more sustainable and profitable, bring additional jobs to Dayton and establish the region as a center for health care innovation.
Ascend is currently narrowing down location options in the heart of downtown Dayton, where it plans to expand with new product development positions in the near future.
