Grand Rapids Medical Mile to become hub for health science headquarters


Grand Rapids Medical Mile is becoming a hub for health science headquarters. 

In April, Perrigo broke ground on its new North American headquarters along Grand Rapids Medical Mile. Now global life science innovator Bold Advanced Medical Future Health, also known as BAMF, is establishing its world headquarters in Grand Rapids at the Doug Meijer Innovation Building leasing 35,000 square feet.

In a news release, this is where the company will bring a new kind of lifesaving technology, “The first-of-its-kind dual-cyclotron radiopharmacy will produce novel radiopharmaceuticals on-site so cancer patients will receive confirmed diagnosis and treatment in a cutting-edge theranostics clinic during their same day visit. The facility will also supply both diagnostic and therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals to hospitals and independent clinics in the West Michigan area.”

BAMF is making a $30 million investment with the expectation to add 200 life science jobs.

Regional non-profit economic development organization, The Right Place, has been working with BAMF leadership since 2017. It’s new headquarters will open in February 2022.
