Pack Health Eyes New Headquarters in Birmingham, Alabama

02/02/2018
Pack Health plans to invest $2.9 million and open its headquarters and operation center in downtown Birmingham, Alabama. The firm anticipates hiring 175 new employees over the next four years.

The start-up company, which plans to hire programmers, developers, health advisers and other positions, has 30 employees and is renovating a building on First Avenue North that should open this summer.

“In addition to accommodating our growing staff and bringing us closer to UAB and quality of life factors such as Railroad Park, Regions Field and Innovation Depot, this is a space where we can host events, work more closely with our local partners and become a hub for innovation in health and healthcare in Birmingham,” Pack Health President Mazi Rasulnia said.

According to the Birmingham Business Alliance, Pack Health is a digital platform for chronic care management that was founded in 2013 and moved to Innovation Depot business incubator in 2014. It graduated from the incubator in 18 months and renovated a building in Avondale for its first headquarters. Its new headquarters is just two blocks away from Innovation Depot.

“Helping companies like Pack Health grow in Birmingham is a significant goal for the Birmingham Business Alliance and its partners,” said Jon Nugent, the BBA’s Vice President of Innovation and Technology. “Pack Health and the Birmingham startups of today are very important to our community’s future and the ability to compete globally for funding and talent. We are fortunate that we have public and private partners in Birmingham that understand that well,” he added.

Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin said, “From its inception here to aligning with major national partners and adding jobs, the company’s growth is a great example of how Birmingham is growing to meet the needs of its citizens.”

“Innovation represents a key catalyst in Alabama’s continued and future economic success. Pack Health has fully embraced this concept and recognizes the benefit of being a major part of the state’s innovation community,” said Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.

“We look forward to working with them as they continue to pave the way for a better and healthier Alabama.” “Pack Health is truly a Birmingham start-up success story,” Jefferson County Commissioner David Carrington said. “Their corporate strategy has resulted in rapid growth, which has enhanced the health of many Alabama citizens. As such, the commission fully supports the expansion of their services throughout our region.”
