Masimo has expanded its Irvine, California headquarters with the addition of an adjacent 32,000 sq. ft. building, the company’s third building at its corporate campus. The expansion of its corporate headquarters is a natural progression, said the company.

The new building is expected to house more than 200 employees, many of which the company anticipates adding to its engineering, sales, and administrative functions in 2010. It is to accommodate the growing demand for its medical technologies, including the expansion of its Rainbow SET Pulse CO-Oximetry and new Acoustic Monitoring business.

Joe Kiani, founder and CEO of Masimo, said: “Over the last year, US healthcare reform has taken center stage. And, as a medical technology innovator on the forefront of improving care and safety for patients, we at Masimo understand just how crucial it is for our nation to get healthcare right.

“We know that millions of Americans are depending on it, and billions of people around the world are watching us! That’s why we have been an active member in both local/community and national discussions concerning healthcare reform in America. We felt a duty to represent the ‘patient care’ side of the healthcare story and doing so allowed us to learn best practices from the nation’s most forward-thinking organizations.”
