[Crain's] Health tech startup Call9 expanding its Brooklyn footprint

Call9, a technology and medical startup, is more than tripling the size of its Sunset Park, Brooklyn, office after raising $24 million in venture capital funds three months ago. The fast-growing firm is moving into a 14,500-square-foot office at Industry City, upgrading from a smaller 4,500-square-foot space it has had since coming to the complex a year ago.

Call9 provides medical staffing at nursing homes along with the technology and software to remotely connect that personnel with off-site physicians who can attend to medical situations and emergencies in real time. The company’s 36-year-old founder and CEO, Timothy Peck, said his firm has partnered in cost-saving agreements with several insurance companies that see his service as a way to save on the high costs of unnecessary trips to emergency rooms. The arrangements allow Call9 to earn some of the money it saves the insurance companies.
