Waltham US home for Israeli firm
EarlySense Inc., an Israeli medical technology company, said it will locate its US headquarters in Waltham and plans to hire 10 employees in Massachusetts by the end of the year, adding another 10 to 20 annually in following years.
Avner Halperin, chief executive of EarlySense, detailed the company’s plans during a ceremony yesterday with Governor Deval Patrick in Framingham at which MetroWest Medical Center rolled out EarlySense’s patient monitoring technology. The equipment, installed at medical centers around the United States and Europe, is designed to document a patient’s vital signs and movement to aid hospital staff in quickly identifying changes in health.
The company’s move to Massachusetts follows the governor’s trade mission to Israel last March, part of his administration’s effort to boost the state’s life sciences sector.
