Omnicell Announces its First Robotic Dispensing System Installation in the Middle East

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- Omnicell, Inc. is installing its first robotic dispensing system in the Middle East after winning a contract and expanding its current relationship with Hamad Medical Cooperation in Qatar. Hamad Medical Cooperation and Omnicell expect the Omnicell robotic dispensing system to be fully operational at The General Hospital, the country's main hospital, next month.

The decision to install an Omnicell robotic dispensing system was a natural step in the continuum of care for Hamad Medical Cooperation, which already uses Omnicell automation systems and other solutions in some of their other health care facilities.

Engineered in Germany, Omnicell's robotic dispensing system is a market leader for quantity of patient packs dispensed every hour in original manufacturers' packages. It serves the needs of a broad spectrum of pharmacy customers, from large hospital outpatient systems to local community pharmacies. The flexible design is optimized for high capacity storage and speed of delivery in a minimum amount of physical space. The system will be just one of the Omnicell products on display at the Arab Health Congress taking place in Dubai January 25-28.

Omnicell was selected over other vendors by Hamad Medical Corporation due to its speed in delivery of patient medication packs, the flexibility in configurations to meet the needs of the outpatient pharmacy and the strong regional support for the Omnicell product lines.
