NewIcon is a well-established company in Finland, developing pharmacy robots for hospitals and pharmacies. They specialize in professional medical service automation solutions and focuses on improving medical service together with its customers.
NewIcon is market leader in Finland, looking for new international markets. They established their office in Odense in the summer 2016.
NewIcon chose Denmark in general and Odense in particular, because the country has dozens of projects underway, where new hospitals are being built and old ones are renovated. There is a need for modern solutions if the hospitals are to fulfill their goal to improve efficiency through centralization. NewIcon has developed some of these modern solutions and hope to develop even more.
– Another advantage of starting a subsidiary in Odense is the multitude of other Health and Robotics companies that have established headquarters in the municipality. The inspiring ecosystem within the clusters that has been developed over several years in Odense is quite unique and so is the Danish way of structuring the health sector as a Whole, says Hanne Hansen-Nord, Key Account Manager at the Danish office.
“We chose Odense as our new site for three reasons; a high service level, a unique cluster of Robotics and Health Tech, and a university hospital open for collaboration. This gives us the best starting point for the Danish – and European – market”. Ossi Parviainen, CEO.
The first smart medicine cabinet trial unit has been installed at Odense University Hospital in March 2017.
