COE – Health

Center of Excellence for Health Care and Life Sciences

Background

Widener SBDC (WDSBDC) received additional COVID-19 stimulus funds to build capacity, to support the healthcare delivery system and small healthcare manufacturing for supply chain needs. We anticipate this added capacity will be used during COVID-19 and beyond the period of supplemental funding and it will help create sustainable jobs for the state.

Key activities

  • Assist medium to large institutions in creating “quick win” innovation by harnessing the talent and insights of front-line staff so that concepts can be quickly vetted and where appropriate move rapidly to commercialization.
  • Assist H&LS entrepreneurs working outside of institutions with getting access to institutional support to validate and refine concepts.
  • Assist H&LS entrepreneurs understand the existing mechanisms for healthcare supply chains and assisting entrepreneurs with market access.

CARES ACT Reporting Metrics from (4/1/2020 to 9/30/2020)

Learn more about the PASBDC Response to COVID-19 CARES Act

The Pennsylvania Small Business Development was awarded a CARES Act funding grant from the U.S. Small Business Administration to help mitigate the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on small-business owners. Nine out of 16 centers prepared proposals to build capacity to provide specific services to all small businesses in Pennsylvania. Funding was set aside to award these proposed “Centers of Excellence” in special recognition for creative programming and collaboration to provide industry sector specific specialized programs and services to industries and core areas most severally impacted in the Commonwealth.

These nine centers created partnership initiatives to expand specific industry sector education, training and business advising to address the issues faced by small businesses as a result of the pandemic.
