- Campus designed from scratch as a hybrid workplace
- More than 60 highly skilled employees have already been hired
Signify Health’s new state-of-the art technology centre in the heart of Galway city was officially opened on June 20 by the company’s CEO Kyle Armbrester.
Prior to the official opening, Kyle Armbrester, who travelled from the U.S. for the event, was honoured at the Galway Chamber Summer Business Lunch which was also attended by Signify Health’s CTO Josh Builder.
Special guests at the opening included Minister for Disability Anne Rabbitte TD and IDA CEO Michael Lohan.
This is Signify Health’s first base outside of the U.S. and the impressive almost 20,000sq ft offices span across two floors in the iconic state-of-the-art Bonham Quay complex overlooking Galway Docks.
Signify Health believes this is one of the first office campuses in Ireland to be purposefully designed from scratch to work as a hybrid working environment.
Signify Health, a CVS Health company (NYSE: CVS), is a leading U.S healthcare technology platform that is working to solve some of the biggest problems in the U.S healthcare system.
It has more than 2,000 employees in the U.S and is dual-headquartered in New York City and Dallas, Texas.
Galway is where the company is building a dynamic and diverse tech team who are creating cutting-edge solutions to help transform the U.S. healthcare system.
In this one-of-a-kind office space in Galway, the company has used an inclusive design that ensures that sensory stimulation is varied throughout the working day.
Designed to create a collaborative and sustainable work environment, the work space promotes a strong enterprise culture and lifestyle in Galway.
Paying homage to the local culture, Signify Health’s offices have been fitted out using local businesses, craftspeople and artists to create a modern and dynamic workplace rooted in the West of Ireland.
The Bonham Quay building is certified with the following: LEED Gold, Gold WELL Building Standard, BER A3 Rating, One Planet Living, Wired Scored Platinum.
Signify Health itself is certified with One Planet Living, which provides a framework for organisations who are committed to creating a truly sustainable workplace. Signify Health has already announced that it will be creating more than 125 new technology innovation roles at Bonham Quay and is currently in active recruitment mode with more than 60 talented team members already hired in a range of software engineering, product management and other technology development roles.
Attending the opening was the executive leadership team of Signify Health as well as representatives from CVS Health, which acquired Signify Health earlier this year, alongside the Irish team which includes Elaine Murphy, Site Lead and Michelle Concannon, Global SVP of Engineering.
Kyle Armbrester, CEO, Signify Health says:
The U.S is facing a tsunami of its aging population and needs new models of care that are convenient, affordable, and lead to improved health. Signify Health
is using its data-driven solutions and technology platform to help connect people to care where, how and when they need it, and help create a more humanised system of care delivery in the U.S.
Our Galway tech hub is essential to our mission and we are committed to retaining, attracting and supporting the best talent in the industry as we continue to grow our Irish team.
We chose Galway as our first base outside the U.S because of its world-class technology and engineering talent and we have not been disappointed by the quality of employees already hired here in Ireland.
I am delighted to be here in Galway again today for the official opening of our Bonham Quay office, and am extremely excited about what we are going to achieve here.
Minister for Disability Anne Rabbitte TD said:
As a Minister from Galway, it gives me great pleasure to see Signify Health creating jobs of such calibre in the city. Not only does it show the importance of Galway as a centre of excellence for MedTech, but also that there is a workforce thriving with talent in Galway and the surrounding areas.
The impact of this investment reaches far beyond Ireland, with its reach extending right around the world.
The choice of Bonham Quay as its home also shows Signify Health’s want to invest in sustainable buildings, which breathe new life into the city.
I wish the team in Signify Health all the best for the future and look forward to their continued growth in Ireland, as well as all the people they support around the world.
Minister for Enterprise Trade & Employment, Simon Coveney TD said:
I’m really happy to welcome Signify Health to Ireland and I’m delighted they’ve chosen Galway for their first office outside the US. This new state of the art, sustainable office space, will create 125 new highly skilled jobs, providing support to healthcare providers around the world. Galway and indeed the West, is now a hub of thriving tech and MedTech companies and this is no surprise as we have such a talented workforce at our disposal. Having such a renowned company like Signify Health choose our country for this exciting new investment is very welcome and demonstrates their confidence in us. I wish the team every success here in Galway and thank them for putting their confidence in Ireland.
Michael Lohan, CEO of IDA Ireland said:
Last year, Signify Health announced plans to create 125 jobs in Galway over two years, so to see their team here grow to in excess of 60 members so far, is very encouraging and showcases Ireland’s hardworking and talented workforce.
IDA Ireland remains committed to winning jobs and investments in regional locations. I wish Signify Health every success as it continues to build its footprint here in Ireland.
