Healthcare innovation is Bethesda grant goal

The Center for Addiction Treatment and Cintrifuse received $150,000 grants from Bethesda  Inc. to develop programs that could lead to breakthroughs in health care delivery.

“As a venture grant maker, we’re dedicated to fostering new thinking that leads to better care, better health and at a lower cost for our community,” said Jill Miller, executive director of Bethesda.

The CAT grant will enable the center to develop a medical training and staffing model for a new primary health clinic that will treat patients suffering from addiction and related health disorders.

Its grant will help Cintrifuse establish Opa!Labs, a healthcare venture studio dedicated to attracting consumer health innovators to Greater Cincinnati in order to incubate, nurture and commercialize ideas.

Bethesda Inc. oversees the Bethesda Fertility Center and Bethesda Foundation, which provides support for Bethesda North Hospital, Bethesda Butler County Hospital, Hospice of Cincinnati and Fernside.
