    Google article title , "Xenex Healthcare’s move to San Antonio paying big dividends" if interested in the complete article.

    The company has nearly doubled the size of its workforce and expects it revenues this year will be twice what they were in 2012, (approaching $25 MILLION in revenue)

    The company had the special machines in roughly two-dozen hospitals before it relocated to San Antonio. It now has machines in approximately 100 U.S. hospitals and is now seeking deals with more medical facilities in the U.S., as well as opportunities in Canada, Central America, Europe and Australia.

    Xenex CEO Morris Miller says the company’s revenues could approach $25 million in 2013. That’s more than double what the company earned in 2011.

    “This (technology) works, and there is a need for what we do,” says Miller, who was initially an angel investor in Xenex and who spearheaded the relocation of the company to San Antonio. “That’s why we are growing so fast.”

    Patients contract nearly 2 million hospital-associated infections annually in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Those infections cause nearly 100,000 deaths each year.
