“Focal Healthcare was founded to fill the need for highly accurate, practical prostate cancer technology that is accessible to all urologists and their patients.”
- Chicuong La, President and CEO
Focal Healthcare is based in Toronto, Ontario and was established in January 2014 by Chief Executive Officer Dr. Chicuong La. Prior to Focal, Dr. La was a key leader in three other early stage ventures: as the VP of Business Development and the COO of prostate imaging company Imagistx, formerly Exact Imaging, as the Business Development Manager at the world renowned medical imaging research center, Robarts Research Institute, and he also served as Managing Partner of Simulogic, a software company in applied medical research.
Throughout his career, Chicuong realized that there were many inefficiencies, inaccuracies, and accessibility issues yet unaddressed in the field of prostate cancer care. Building upon his strong background in the field of medical imaging, Chicuong founded Focal Healthcare with the vision to develop best-in-class image-guidance technology that is accurate, efficient and accessible, thereby enabling better diagnosis and treatment for all prostate cancer patients.
