FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Patcom Medical Inc. opens US subsidiary to bring its operations closer to its customers
Toronto, ON / Buffalo, NY (July 1st 2021) –PatCom Medical Inc., the rising leader in equipment solutions for dysphagia announces the establishment of PatCom Medical USA Inc., a new subsidiary based in Buffalo, NY commencing its operations on July 1st 2021.
It is estimated that over 9 million Americans suffer from difficulty swallowing, otherwise known as “dysphagia”. Proper instrumental assessment is still not available to all patients which can cause great harm. The United States is on the forefront of helping patients with dysphagia adequately by having Speech Language Pathologists (SLP) evaluate the swallow through Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing. FEES® is a registered trademark of Susan Langmore, Ph.D.
Patcom Medical is the only company in the field of endoscopic equipment that focuses on working with Speech Language Pathologists and their need for equipment when performing swallowing diagnostics. Expanding further in the United States by establishing a US entity demonstrates the commitment of PatCom Medical to Speech Pathologists in the United States.
CEO of PatCom Medical, Christoph Schmitz explains: “Expanding Patcom’s presence in the Unites States is perfect timing. SLPs trust us as the application specialist for FEES®, Videostroboscopy and Reflux Testing. We will be even closer to our customers and we have many exciting solutions in the pipeline to assist them further in taking great care of their patients.”
Buffalo, NY is the ideal location to establish PatCom Medical USA Inc. and to grow the business exponentially in the near future.
