Lincor Solutions Inc., a global provider of patient engagement technology to hospitals and health systems, opened its new corporate headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee
. Previously based in Ireland, Lincor has relocated its executive office to Music City to launch a nationwide effort to grow the company's presence in the U.S. healthcare market.
The firm hired five sales executives and within the next nine months it plans to add an additional 10 to 15 corporate office employees for sales, product and support positions. The company will maintain research, product development, customer support and international sales functions at its facilities in Cork and Dublin, Ireland.
"American hospitals are facing enormous financial pressure to engage patients, improve satisfaction, and enhance clinical outcomes," said Lincor CEO Richard Cooke. "Because our technology platform helps hospitals achieve these goals while simplifying caregiver workflow and improving the patient experience, we see tremendous opportunity to work with hospitals across the country. And Nashville, as the home of so many hospital systems and healthcare providers, is the logical home base for the next phase of Lincor's international growth."
To support its U.S. growth strategy, Lincor said it relocated five executive positions from Ireland to the new corporate office: CEO, chief technology officer, Chief Financial Officer, SVP of Marketing, and SVP of Sales. To complete its executive team, Lincor hired Nashville native Chris Cashwell as SVP of Global Marketing and Strategy.
"I am excited about joining the Lincor team as the company embarks on its U.S. expansion," Cashwell said. "By empowering patients and giving them the tools to participate in their care, we can help hospitals achieve better patient engagement and outcomes in a way that is consistent, measurable and cost-effective."
