Thomas Izdebski represents the third generation of his family in the global healthcare sector. As a young scientist and prospective medical student, Thomas started his first medical device company at 17, playing a key role in the financing, design, and development of over 15 medical devices – several of which were licensed to industry leaders, Medtronic and Atrium. As the author or co-author of over 20 patents and publications, Thomas continues to innovate global healthcare delivery for nearly two decades. Under the framework of the One Belt One Road initiative, Thomas led technology transfer and commercialization efforts in the medtech and biotech sectors, through the formation of joint ventures (JV) with European and Middle Eastern enterprises. Most notably, Thomas was involved with the centralization of a JV between Israel’s Clalit Health, the second largest HMO in the world, and China’s Suzhou Industrial Park, in Jiangsu Province, China.
Thomas works to improve the standard of care through strategic alignment of key financial partners, technologies, healthcare systems, and pharmaceuticals. As healthcare systems around the world become increasingly stressed by high utilization and a rapidly aging population, Thomas is focused on the delivery of care outside traditional hospitals and medical facilities as well as optimizing the care delivered in traditional hospital settings.
