Israeli Company Opening HQ in Foxborough; Plans Call for 30 Jobs
Ornim Medical makes non-invasive brain scanners. Its decision to open a headquarters in Foxborough was announced following Gov. Deval Patrick's trade mission to the country.
The office will start with 10 employees and then add 20 more over the next two years, according to Gary Sagiv, the company's vice president of global marketing and sales.
Ornim made the announcement following Gov. Deval Patrick's trade mission to Israel last month.
"The opportunity to meet with (Governor Patrick) and other participants in the delegation has further highlighted the benefits of Massachusetts for innovative
medical technology companies like Ornim," company CEO Israel Schreiber said in a statement. "Massachusetts provides us with access to the scientific and clinical community, and allows us to draw on the vast human capital that will be critical to our growth."
Ornim already operates a clinical site at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.
The company is releasing its newest product, the "c-FLOW" monitor, later this year. It has sensors that attach to a patient's head, allowing a doctor to monitor brain activity in real time.
Gov. Patrick praised the company's decision to open an office in the Bay State.
"Massachusetts continues to lead the world in life sciences," Patrick said in a statement. "Through our recent innovation partnership mission we built new relationships that will result in life sciences growth in both Israel and
Massachusetts. We welcome Ornim to Massachusetts and look forward to their contributions to our thriving life sciences community."
