The facilities are located in the city’s Strip district, according to the report, and will triple the floor space for London-based Smith & Nephew’s robotics business, which currently employs approximately 100 individuals in the area, according to the report.
“Pittsburgh is the R&D headquarters of our rapidly expanding robotics business and we are very excited to be the first tenants at The Stacks at 3 Crossings. This state-of-the art facility will be a key innovation center for Smith & Nephew that will provide an engaging environment for both current and prospective new employees to create next generation surgical robotic platforms,” Smith & Nephew R&D robotics and surgical enablers VP Brian McKinnon told the Post-Gazette.
The new facility will focus on robotics and allow an expansion of Smith & Nephew’s Navio surgical system and the development of next-generation products, according to the report. It will also include a medical training center focused on the company’s robotic platforms.
Earlier this month, Smith & Nephew said that it inked a deal to acquire patient monitoring system developer Leaf Healthcare for an undisclosed amount.
