Since its founding in 1998, Vecna Technologies has developed a number of ways to help hospitals care for patients. The differences among those products have also led to a number of transformations and spinoffs, including material handling company Vecna Robotics and the health care nonprofit VecnaCares. In 2017, Daniel spun out Vecna Robotics to focus exclusively on robotics for industrial settings like manufacturing, logistics, and order fulfillment. “As we look at the aging population, that burden of care is really going to fall on family members as well as [health care organizations],” Deborah says. The robots will be part of Vecna’s “Be There Network” that health care providers can use to provide care for large numbers of patients despite staff shortages.
