Heber City Named 5th Fastest-Growing Small Town in America

Heber City - Forbes ranked Heber City No. 5 on its list of America’s fastest-growing small towns. Heber’s population rose 14.6 percent to 23,530 between 2007 and 2010, and residents have a median income of $65,204.

Heber City was the only Western U.S. location listed in the top five and the only Utah municipality in the top 10. Heber’s unemployment rate is well below the national average at 6.6 percent in November 2011.

“Being recognized by Forbes speaks volumes about our community,” says Ryan Starks, Wasatch County director of tourism and economic development. “More families and businesses are choosing to relocate to Heber Valley due to its beautiful surroundings, enviable quality of life and business-friendly environment.”

Only 40 minutes from Salt Lake and 20 minutes from Utah County, the Heber Valley is known for its beautiful scenery and many outdoor activities in all seasons of the year. According to Forbes, the area “is a magnet for skiers and fly fishers.” Forbes also notes that retirees contributed to the rapid growth.

The list was determined by using census data to calculate the population growth between 2007 and 2010 for every Metropolitan and Micropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) with fewer than 100,000 people.

Utah Company Receives FDA Clearance

Park City - CONTROL MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY received U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance to market the ASPIRE MAX aspiration system.      

The patented ASPIRE MAX aspiration system bridges the gap between basic syringe-catheter kits and complex electromechanical systems to remove blood clots, or thrombus, from vessels in the body. The core ASPIRE aspirator is a high-performance aspirator with integrated handles and valves that allow clinicians to instantly create, increase, decrease, slow, stop or “pulse” aspiration force. MAX aspiration catheters are proprietary large internal diameter aspiration catheters available in multiple outer diameters and lengths to improve aspiration speed, force and control.

“We are pleased to receive FDA clearance,” says Shawn Fojtik, CEO of Control Medical and core patent contributor. “Clinicians describe the ASPIRE as an ‘Aspiration Gas Pedal’ that allows them to control aspiration like never before. We look forward to seeing it used to improve patient care.”
