Legato’s positive start to life in Limerick


THE Country Head of Legato Health Technologies (Legato) has said that the very encouraging ‘first-quarter’ for the company in Limerick bodes positively for the future.

Reflecting on an eventful but hugely successful first four months for the company in Ireland, Country Head John Shaw said that the experience has reinforced the company’s confidence in its project here.

In acknowledgement of the support the company has received, it is making a donation to three worthy charities – migrant support group Doras, domestic abuse services provider ADAPT and St. Gabriel’s Foundation, which provides specialist services and respite for children with severe life-limiting disabilities.

Legato Health Technologies is committed to transforming healthcare through operational excellence, innovation and digital transformation. With over 20,000 staff worldwide, the company is using innovative technology to enhance health and increase efficiencies across the sector.

The company’s recruitment programme is continuing at pace, with positions available in software engineering, AI, business analytics and data science. For further information, go to its Careers page.

“The final quarter is a busy one for most but for us here in Legato Health Technologies, it’s been a particularly special one. In September we announced our intention to establish our global R&D headquarters in Limerick with 60 jobs and just four months later we have our base here in Castletroy, our recruitment programme is well underway and we announced the doubling of our staff to 120.

“If anything, the start we’ve had has reaffirmed our confidence in Limerick and Ireland as a location for our R&D base. We’ve got incredible support, from the IDA and government and locally as well, from the likes of Limerick City and County Council, Limerick Chamber and the two universities, UL and TUS. We’re finding this a very pro-business region and we look forward to developing those relationships going forward,” he said.

Mr Shaw also paid tribute to the core team’s contribution. “The quick early strides would not have been possible without our core team. We’ve assembled an excellent team that has put the energy into the project and is pivotal to laying the foundations for something that will be hugely beneficial for human health but also for those who join us on this journey and for the economy of the region.

“Our company values of leadership, community, integrity, agility and diversity have been reflected in how everyone has come together, internally and externally, on this exciting project over the past four months. We acknowledge this very much and one way we are saying ‘thank-you’ is by making a donation to local charities doing incredible work in improving the lives of some of the most marginalised people in society.”
