Awarepoint Secures $14M
San Diego’s Awarepoint, which uses a Zigbee-based wireless mesh sensor network for real-time tracking of patients, medical devices, and hospital equipment, has closed on $14 million in debt financing, according to a pair of recent regulatory filings (here and here). Awarepoint said last month it had acquired Charlotte, NC-based Patient Care Technology Systems, although no price was disclosed. The company also named a new CEO, Jay Deady, and raised $9 million about six months ago. Awarepoint has previously raised capital from Silicon Valley Bank, Avalon Ventures, Cardinal Partners, JAFCO Ventures, and Venrock.
