ProMedica Charles and Virginia Hospital team members let your creativity SHINE!

Adrian-based team members are invited to share bright ideas for new or improved medical technologies, software or devices by August 31, 2022, as part of the Charles and Virginia Hickman Hospital Innovation Challenge.

We’ll see if we can help you make your potential healthcare products a reality AND enter you for a chance to win a YETI® cooler— the perfect accessory for birdwatching, biking, kayaking and any other upcoming outdoor adventures you might have planned.

There is no limit to the number of submissions per entrant. We will evaluate every idea for commercialization potential and award at least one prize to a Charles and Virginia Hickman Hospital participant.

Contest FAQs

Who can submit ideas to ProMedica Innovations?
We welcome ideas from all ProMedica employees and anyone in the surrounding communities we serve. However, only ProMedica employees are eligible for the competition prizes.

Other than prizes, why should I share my idea with you?
Whether your idea could make your day-to-day work easier or revolutionize patient care, bringing an early-stage medical technology to market is time-consuming and costly. When you submit an idea, you open a line of communication with a team of experts capable of providing critical connections and commercialization resources including business assessment, beta testing, prototype engineering, patent searches and filing, FDA testing and more.

If my idea is developed, what’s in it for me?
ProMedica Innovations assesses submissions for commercial viability and funds necessary pre-commercialization work for high potential innovations. Should an invention go-to market, you will receive a percentage of the revenue generated.
