COLUMBUS, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Capsa Healthcare, a leading innovator in healthcare delivery solutions for hospitals, long-term care, and retail pharmacy providers, announced the acquisition of Humanscale Healthcare, a designer and manufacturer of flexible technology solutions and computing workstations based in New York, NY. Capsa’s purchase of Humanscale Healthcare is the company’s seventh major brand acquisition in the last 11 years.

The addition of Humanscale Healthcare’s TouchPoint Mobile Technology Carts, MedLink Medication Management, and ViewPoint Wall Stations are in full complement to Capsa’s benchmark line of point-of-care solutions.
