Gearing up for the future of healthcare
Canon Medical Systems, leading provider of diagnostic medical imaging solutions, officially opened their new European headquarters on September 14th with a ceremony by Mr. Toshio Takiguchi, President and CEO of Canon Medical Systems Corporation.

Built with sustainability in mind
The building itself has been designed with a focus on sustainability and energy efficiency. The company has implemented several eco-conscious measures, including the reuse of water from cooling equipment for building heating, energy-saving technologies like LED lighting, and the automation of screens to shut off during periods of inactivity. An extensive electric Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) backup system and CO2 ventilation sensors have also been integrated to ensure more efficient energy use.
The Amsterdam Area supports innovative ambitions
The move to Amstelveen aligns with Canon Medical Systems Corporation's proactive approach to the future, allowing the company to accommodate a new way of working that prioritises ergonomics, collaboration, and adaptability. This strategic choice places the headquarters within the Amsterdam Area, a highly connected hub known for its contributions in life sciences and health.
From using AI to discharge patients more efficiently to the host of medtech startups that call the region home, Canon Medical Systems is surrounded by fellow innovators who are advancing healthcare and fostering collaboration throughout the area.
