Focused on innovative, cutting-edge research and development, Navis provides laboratory drug testing solutions and molecular and clinical blood testing for healthcare providers to aid in the diagnosis, treatment, management and prevention of substance use disorder, mental health conditions, chronic pain, and common comorbid acute and chronic diseases, including HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), urinary tract infections (UTIs), respiratory infections and antibiotic resistant infections.
President and CEO Richard Stripp, Ph.D., who was joined by Navis leadership, employees, friends and family, shared his excitement about Navis’ future. “We’re delighted to be in Nashville, the health services capital of the U.S., and to have the opportunity to bring business and jobs to the area. We have a very aggressive growth strategy, and this is just the beginning for us. We have a national footprint serving clients nationwide, and this move will help facilitate our evolution into a one-stop shop for our clients and allow us to deliver services to patients who really need our help.”
Lori Odom, Senior Vice President of Economic Development, Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce, opened the ceremony with a warm welcome to Navis, which joins the area’s robust and diverse health care community of more than 500 health care companies, making it the largest industry in the region. “Nashville is known as Music City, but it is also Healthcare City. Our mission is to create economic prosperity by facilitating leadership and partnership with companies, and Navis is a great example of what that can accomplish,” said Odom.
“At Navis, we understand that behind everything we do is a human being whose life is directly impacted by the services we provide,” said Dr. Stripp. “Many patients we serve have complex health conditions. Navigating the healthcare system to find care that treats the whole patient rather than just a single illness is often a challenge. We advocate for those patients by developing solutions that empower healthcare providers to provide exceptional care, improve outcomes and save lives.”
Navis launched in February of this year and currently owns three state-of-the-art laboratories located in New York, Washington and Massachusetts, allowing it to provide services nationally to healthcare practices. Dr. Stripp originally founded the New York laboratory location as American Forensic Toxicology Services.
