MCA Foundation Launches Redesigned Website

Officials with the Medical Center of the Americas (MCA) Foundation announced on Friday the launch of its newly redesigned website with updated content and functionality that makes it easier to understand the MCA’s mission and initiatives.

“This new website is important because the MCA is dedicated to both transparency and promotion,” said Emma Schwartz, President of the MCA Foundation. “This new website design allows us to communicate in a concise and engaging way all of the wonderful work happening not only at the MCA, but also throughout the region.  Promoting our region’s advancements in developing a robust healthcare industry and an exciting biomedical innovation ecosystem is important for our own community members so that they can get involved and for external parties that may want to do business here or relocate to the region.”

The new website offers a variety of new and updated features, including fresh and reorganized content and hopes to foster more community engagement through increased and user-friendly functionality.

The new site includes additional information on the MCA’s primary programs, including the MCA Innovation Center, Clinical Trials, BIO El Paso-Juarez, Real Estate and Campus Planning, and the Cardwell Collaborative. It also allows online donations to specific programs and areas of support, event sponsorships, and online registration for events.

Additionally, users will now be able to apply for the MCA’s entrepreneur/innovator development and startup development programs online.

Josh Hunt, chair of the MCA Foundation board, says, “We want the community to know that we are resource for them, and we need them to get involved.  The first step to getting more engagement is by clearly communicating who we are and what we do, then creating easy ways to participate.  This new website does these things very well.”

MCA Foundation Headed to Boston for 2018 BIO International Convention

The MCA Foundation is headed to Boston this week to showcase El Paso’s biotechnology and life sciences sectors at the world’s largest biotechnology conference, the BIO International Convention.

“This year, El Paso will have a voice and be well-represented at BIO International,” said Emma Schwartz, President of the MCA Foundation.  “We are proud to partner with THBI and the rest of the state to showcase the strengths of our life sciences industry and promote the benefits of doing business in our unique region.”

At BIO International, the MCA will promote the region’s thriving life sciences and growing biotech industries while connecting with the biggest names in biotech.

The MCA will also be promoting BIO El Paso-Juarez, a new organization formed in partnership with the Cluster Biomedico Regional in Juarez to bring together and enhance the medical device industry in El Paso and Juarez.

The MCA is attending BIO International as part of the Texas delegation led by the Texas Healthcare and Bioscience Institute (THBI) and the Office of the Governor and Texas Economic Development Corporation (TxEDC).

The Texas delegation includes representatives from more than 30 communities and companies. More than 16,000 biotechnology and pharmaceutical leaders are expected to attend the annual gathering.
