Hologic Opens Learning and Experience Centre in Zaventem, Belgium

March 21, 2019 — Hologic Inc. opened its first Learning and Experience Centre in Zaventem, Belgium. The state-of-the-art facility provides comprehensive training for customers, healthcare professionals and employees across Hologic’s Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, centralizing the education experience for Hologic’s women's health technologies.

The 1,500m2 Learning and Experience Centre contains fully equipped training labs with demonstration capabilities for technologies from all four of Hologic’s divisions (Breast & Skeletal Health, Diagnostic, Gynecological Surgical and Medical Aesthetics) to ensure the highest level of understanding and provide hands-on experience.

For the first time, Hologic will bring training and education for all its products under one roof – located at the heart of Europe – to offer a cohesive, convenient and interconnected experience. Products featured at the Hologic Learning and Experience Centre include:

  • 3Dimensions – a mammography system that delivers fast, high-resolution 3-D images and is clinically proven to be more comfortable and enhance workflow.
  • Panther Fusion – a fully automated, integrated molecular testing platform with true sample-to-result automation, adaptable workflow options and a consolidated testing menu.
  • NovaSure – a minimally invasive, one-time, five-minute endometrial ablation procedure to reduce or stop abnormal uterine bleeding.
  • PicoSure – a laser workstation to remove tattoos and revitalize skin by reducing the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars and pigment-like freckles, sunspots and discoloration.

The creation of Hologic’s European hub and the consolidation of key European functions, including customer service, will create up to 60 new jobs in Belgium over the next 12 months. Each year, the new Learning and Experience Centre is expected to welcome several thousand visitors including healthcare professionals, key opinion leaders, current and prospective customers, distributor partners and employees.
