Drawing from decades of service and experience, HTG aims to reinvent and simplify the concept of medical equipment management. 

HTG will be led by Steve Cannon as President & CEO.  Cannon has a long and distinguished career in health care, as well as in the health care technology and the asset management industry. He has held executive leadership positions at Sun Health and Premier, one of the nation’s largest GPO’s. He served as the inaugural President at AllParts Medical, and has held executive leadership roles at Aramark, Philips Healthcare, Sodexo, and most recently, Althea U.S.

Under The Innovation Institute, and with the Healthcare Technology Group business model and brand, the Cannon added that the company expects to bring their technology and service standard to a broad number of healthcare providers.  Speaking about HTG’s vision, Cannon explained that, “At a strategic level, HTG plans to offer unprecedented partnership structures to in-house programs for both health systems and rural hospitals – programs that have historically only been offered to large hospitals and health systems.” 

Cannon also emphasized that “HTG will be able to deliver a comprehensive and differentiated clinical asset management program in an ever-changing environment.”  He says the company intends to create value and be transformative by providing one of the most comprehensive service offerings in the industry.
