“It is an honor to be recognized in The Top 25 Healthcare Technology Leaders of Washington, DC for 2023 by The Healthcare Technology Report.
Since day one, Spartan Medical® has provided the best-in-class medical technologies to our public and private customers. We have an amazing team, with elite talents spanning many fields, allowing us to respond and adapt to a changing industry more quickly and efficiently.
For instance, at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Spartan Medical® was one of the first companies in the country to create a comprehensive COVID-19 mitigation program. Our customizable, turnkey programs helped many colleges, businesses, and government entities suppress COVID-19 outbreaks and keep their communities safely operating during the pandemic.
Spartan Medical® has also recently joined forces with Tangelo to provide the Veteran HealthPak™, a comprehensive solution to address the clinical needs of seventy-two percent of veteran patients with one or more chronic diseases. The HealthPak™ provides veterans with strategically-directed comprehensive services for a year, such as medically tailored condition-specific “food as medicine,” medical devices for tracking vitals, monthly nutritional therapy, behavioral health coaching, along with other needed value-added services.
Because of our ability to provide actionable solutions in any environment, The Healthcare Technology Report took notice of Spartan Medical®. I want to thank my Spartan team for their tremendous dedication, hard work, and willingness to accept any challenge. I also want to thank our customers who have placed their trust and confidence in us. We would not be where we are today without you. Thank you!”

The Healthcare Technology Report is pleased to announce The Top 25 Healthcare Technology Leaders of Washington, DC for 2023. While the District of Columbia is more traditionally known for its public sector significance and professional services rather than its healthcare technology industry, the leaders on this year’s list and the companies they represent may very well put the district on the map. Across a variety of specialties, from molecular diagnostics to immunology, therapeutics, and pharmaceuticals, among many others, these companies are revolutionizing healthcare technology for patients and clinicians in the DC metro area and beyond.
Some of the distinguished leaders on this year’s list include Vince Proffitt, Founder and President of Spartan Medical®, whose comprehensive, turnkey programs helped suppress COVID-19 outbreaks and keep customers’ organizations safely operating during the pandemic. Meanwhile, President and CEO Bruce Lichorowic’s Galen Robotics is developing a single-platform solution to eliminate hand tremors and enable surgeons to realize precise, minimally invasive interventions that were previously considered beyond human capacity. And CEO Dr. Yaning Wang’s Createrna Science & Technology is developing novel therapeutics for diseases with high unmet medical need, and the company recently announced positive top-line results from the Phase 1 studies of a leading drug candidate for the treatment of refractory and unexplained chronic cough.
The awardees on this year’s list lead from a range of positions, from CEO to COO, CTO, Vice President, and more. What they have in common is their dedication to innovating within their specialties to save lives and extend the healthspans of patients in the DC metro area and around the world.
