Medical Software Company ‘Rendia’ Relocates to Federal Hill

| February 22, 2022 | 0 Comments

Medical software company Rendia has relocated from Fells Point to the 1111 Light Street office building in Federal Hill. Rendia is leasing an approximately 3,100 sq. ft. space on the second floor that was previously occupied by BTS Software Solutions.

Rendia was started in 2000 by Dr. Stephen Sopher and his sons Michael, Brad, and Jordan Sopher to provide pictures and visuals to patients to help educate them. Rendia helps medical offices connect with patients via its animations and educational software.

Rendia has produced more than 1,000 videos that are shared with patents and displayed in medical waiting rooms. All of Rendia’s software and video production is produced in-house. Rendia has 32 employees who work in visual art, costumer success, sales, engineering, finance, and marketing. The company is led by CEO Smitha Gopal.

Optometry, which Dr. Sopher specializes in, has been a key focus for Rendia. It also specializes in otorhinolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat) and facial aesthetics.

Gopal told the new office is built for the hybrid work model. The office features dedicated desks, long tables for collaborative work, conference and meeting rooms, and rooms with televisions to link in employees working from home. The office also has an employee lounge as well as a kitchen and lunch area.

Rendia employees are also able to use the amenities at the 1111 Light Street apartment building which include a gym and game room.

The office space has concrete floors, many plants purchased at Plantacea in Federal Hill, a plant wallpaper, and large windows that look out to Cross Street Market, Federal Hill, and M&T Bank Stadium. Rendia is also a dog-friendly office.

Gopal said Cross Street Market has been a big hit so far with Rendia’s staff, and they look forward to having happy hours and events in Federal Hill in the coming months.

“Work should be a place you are excited to come to,” added Gopal.
