Cornell history

Originally named Minash & Company, the first form of Cornell was founded in 1970 to design, repair, and install radio towers and radio systems by three American military veterans with radio communication training. The founders eventually developed a nurse communication system, leading to our original Visual Nurse Call System. With a thriving vision and product, the name of the company was changed to Cornell Electronic Products and the team introduced their first Visual Nurse Call System.

After many years of delivering care, former GE executive J.J. Johnson purchased the company in 1993 and changed the name to Cornell Communications. Since then, Cornell has continually found better ways to connect people with care by expanding its products to include an emergency intercom system known as Area of Refuge Communication as well as Wireless Nurse Call and Care Communication Systems. Today, our InFORM™ family of Nurse Call Systems and Sentinel™ family of Area of Refuge Systems continue to set new standards for reliability, responsiveness and flexibility to readily adapt to the changing needs of the facilities and organizations that incorporate them.
