HMIC (Health & Medtech Industry Cluster)

HMIC is an economic development initiative of RDA Hunter. It was established in 2020 to help build the Hunter Central Coast’s healthtech ecosystem and support regional sovereignty.

It has grown into an informal cluster of companies and organisations that share a vision for the region as a strong healthtech contributor nationally and internationally.

HMIC works with industry, research, Health, governments and enabling organisations to support industry/health, industry/research translation and industry/education collaborations.

Its primary aims are to:

(1) identify opportunities for our local industry base to grow and diversify, and

(2) raise the profile of the Hunter Central Coast as a location for health & medtech

The HMIC stakeholder base is large and varied and reflects the region’s wider economy. It includes companies with technical expertise in health & medtech, advanced manufacturing and engineering companies, our LHDs, clinicians, allied health companies, healthtech-focused professional services companies, researchers, educators, government and industry peak bodies.

Economic Development Australia featured HMIC (MedTeCCH as it was known then) in its annual Journal in 2021. Read the story here EDA JOURNAL FEATURING MEDTECCH_HMIC (page 30)
