Our History

Simcoe Hab was founded in 1979 by Prabhakar Burhanpurkar, a pioneer in the fields of OT and Physio. Prabhakar entered the field in 1951 when it was in its infancy. He was a representative at the World Health Organization and was also a primary advisor to several universities such as Dalhousie for the creation of their Faculties of Occupational Therapy. In 1995 he was appointed Assistant Administrator of a 1,000 bed hospital in Ontario. He was also tapped to perform operational reviews of major Canadian institutions such as Lakehead Psychiatric Hospital.

Prabhakar passed away in 2011 leaving his son, Vivek to lead the company. Vivek brings with him 29 years of experience founding and managing technology and health sciences companies as well as dealing with the highest levels of global corporations and governments including Heads of State. He has a broad based science and technology background and is well published in leading peer reviewed science journals and has co-chaired international scientific conferences.
