Quantum Health Commits to Adding 525 Columbus Jobs
COLUMBUS, April 30, 2012— Care coordination innovator Quantum Health, Inc. announced today at a joint news conference with Governor John Kasich, Mayor Michael B. Coleman and County Commissioner Paula Brooks that it will maintain its headquarters in Columbus and expand local operations to create at least 525 full-time jobs, more than doubling its healthcare workforce of the future‖ over the next three years.
Responding to the rapidly growing demand for its high-tech, patient-centric services, Quantum Health expects to generate an additional $24.6 million in annual payroll (beyond its $11 million existing payroll) by hiring additional experienced nurses and Patient Service Representatives (PSRs), as well as information technology, marketing, customer engagement and other support positions. Recognized repeatedly as one of the best places to work in Ohio and across the nation, Quantum Health had been evaluating economic development offers outside of Ohio before committing to undertake its growth in Columbus.
“Visionary businesses like Quantum Health are what make Columbus the best city for jobs in the Midwest,” Mayor Michael B. Coleman said. “This expansion further strengthens our economy while providing new employment opportunities for our residents. I want to thank Quantum, Franklin County and the State of Ohio for helping to make this possible.”
