Vocera Communications opens international office in Dubai
"Thought leaders in the Arabian Peninsula have a vision to create and sustain centers of excellence in health care," Vocera CEO and President Brent Lang said. "The new Vocera office enables us to better support this growth opportunity and also positions us to serve our expanding luxury hotel partners in the region."
He added that the Vocera office in Dubai will serve hospitals and luxury hotels, such as the Rosewood Abu Dhabi in Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
The Arabian Peninsula is one of the fastest-growing regions in the world and is expected to be the site for hundreds of newly constructed hospitals over the next five years. Demand for new health care facilities is predominantly driven by a shortage of hospital beds as well as an increase in medical tourism.
One of Vocera's flagship hospitals will have more than 2,000 users, while another facility plans to have a house-wide deployment that has been described as "wall-to-wall Vocera" by the customer.
