About the Mission Center for Innovation

"Nurture trumps nature as far as creativity goes."
– The Innovator's DNA

We view change as an exciting, positive opportunity for transformation, and exist to encourage, support and develop ideas for innovative improvements in Healthcare within the Mission Health and beyond. From the way care is delivered, to the technology used to treat patients, the Mission Center for Innovation is here to link departments and accelerate product and process development.

Your ability to generate innovative ideas is not merely a function of the mind, but also a function of behaviors. As we change our behavior, we can become even more creative.


We provide the following support for introducing, developing, and deploying innovative ideas:

  • Education: Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Innovation Management*
  • Facilitation of connections with appropriate partners
  • Business planning/feasibility analysis
  • Funding on a case by case basis
  • *Through a partnership with Western Carolina University
