remotemedical.jpgTo help broaden its reach and continue providing medical assistance in hard-to-reach places, Seattle-based Remote Medical International just landed $8 million in fresh funding from Columbia Pacific Management.

Founded in 2003, Remote Medical has 100 employees that respond to incidents in remote places for customers mainly involved in industrial, offshore and international industries. Beyond providing aid around the globe, Remote Medical offers training and also sells equipment with its online store.

Columbia Pacific Management owns 23 hospitals throughout Asia through its Columbia Asia facilities, and now thanks to the new partnership, Remote Medical will begin using those hospitals as its base of operations in Asia. 

“Together, Columbia Pacific and Remote Medical will utilize a chain of strategically located hospitals and a sophisticated team of health experts to deliver quality care, advanced medical training, pharmaceuticals, telemedicine and medical equipment virtually anywhere there is a need,” Brian Vincent, CEO of Remote Medical International, said in a press release. “This results in a continuity of care for our clients from remote areas to local communities.”

Vincent said that the company is expected to grow by 60 percent this year and the new funding will help it provide better services.
