A new life sciences company has been welcomed to Inverness Campus.
Local health provider, Alert Health, has relocated its new clinic to a larger unit in the award-winning Aurora House, which is owned by Inverness Campus developer, Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE).
HIE is developing the Campus as a nationally and internationally significant location for business, research and education. Collaboration among different organisations located on site has been a key feature from the outset.
Karen Thomson, the agency’s senior development manager for the Campus, said:
“We’re delighted to welcome Alert Health to Inverness Campus. This is the 19th company to locate here and one that will further strengthen the collaborative life sciences cluster that has always been fundamental to the Campus development.
“Aurora House is now fully occupied, and the total number of jobs based at the Campus has passed the 1,000 mark, which is great news. To continue this momentum and meet further demand, we are making more space available for sale or lease.”
Alert Health’s new clinic has been fitted with seven clinical rooms, a client meeting room, a central reception area and two clinical testing rooms.
The premises are well equipped for teams operating within life sciences, digital healthcare and technology fields.
Dr Liz Wright, Alert Health’s clinical director, said:
“Being part of the campus community will provide us with fantastic opportunities for innovation and development, leading to improved services for our clients.
“Already, we are considering collaborations around new technologies, and with our increased clinic space, we’re planning to introduce complimentary services such as physiotherapy, counselling and dietetics.”
