Tunstall Healthcare Group, the world leader in remote care and safety monitoring, has acquired Hawaii-based medical alarm company Kupuna Monitoring Systems, Inc., via its US subsidiary, Tunstall Americas. The acquisition expands Tunstall’s service footprint across the United States through acquiring and partnering with highly regarded regional providers of connected care monitoring services.
Casey Pittock, President and CEO of Tunstall Americas stated
We are very pleased to welcome Kupuna’s employees and customers to the Tunstall family. In Hawaiian, “Kupuna” means elder. This is indicative of the common bond between our two companies, as we share a passion for helping elders – and all people – remain safe, healthy, and independent at home through innovative technology and high-touch connected care monitoring services.”
Tunstall Americas provides nationwide 24/7 healthcare monitoring services from HIPAA compliant call centers in New York and Rhode Island. Tunstall also manufacturers a wide variety of FDA registered medical alert, telehealth, and medication management products to meet the needs of all people. These products enable personal support services through traditional telephone lines, cellular, and the internet. Collectively, these products and services deliver a seamless connected care experience for people.
Cullen Hayashida, the locally well-known founder and president of Kupuna Monitoring Systems, said of the acquisition
We are proud of the work we have done the past 10 years to support the elder community throughout Hawaii, and very grateful for the trust people have put in KMS. We believe that our local service delivery and strong relationships with healthcare institutions and government agencies combined with Tunstall's world-class connected care monitoring products and services will create new opportunities to serve Hawaii’s kupuna and their families.”
