Via Nova, which opened in 2019, has more than 30 employees and accounts for over 3,000 consultations per year. The clinic covers over 8,000 square meters and includes departments for orthopedics, surgery, medical imaging and hospitalization. It was launched after a EUR 6 million capital injection from private players, KBC Bank and the government of Flanders, including the region’s investment company PMV.
Via Nova is also known as an important scientific center and is renowned for its innovative treatments. In 2019, the center was the world’s first-ever equine clinic to use smart, augmented-reality (AR) glasses during surgery, allowing surgeons to project scanned images during the procedure for more precise work.
