TriZetto Corporation, a healthcare IT company, opened its new worldwide headquarters at the Meridian International Business Center in Douglas County, Colorado, which is expected to create as many as 750 new jobs in the next five years.
Presently home to about 900 employees, TriZetto’s Douglas County build-to-suit, 168,000-square-foot facility includes a executive briefing center, conference center, implementation center and upgrade center, as well as a walking path, health and fitness center and gourmet-quality café.
“Congratulations to TriZetto on opening a new headquarters and bringing hundreds of new jobs to Colorado,” said Gov. John Hickenlooper. “TriZetto’s expansion reflects on how our business-friendly climate, vibrant healthcare and technology sectors and highly educated workforce attracts and create jobs. TriZetto is one of many companies that recognize Colorado is a great place to do business and have chosen to open or expand business here.”
“TriZetto’s dramatic job growth has come as we’ve expanded to enable healthcare payer and provider organizations to collaborate more efficiently and effectively and drive a healthier consumer population,” said Trace Devanny, the firm’s chairman and CEO. “With unprecedented change in the U.S. healthcare industry comes an unprecedented opportunity for TriZetto to help improve the system and simplify healthcare for everyone. We approach this challenge with humility, with accountability and now with a truly world-class headquarters in Colorado that is conducive to the important work we do.”
“We designed our new headquarters to fuel individual and team creativity, initiative and problem solving on behalf of our valued clients,” Devanny said. “We wanted to give our associates the very best work environment, and our associates – a remarkable group of professionals – gave back generously, playing a vital role in the design process.”
During a fund-raising campaign, TriZetto’s employees donated $10,000 for personalized concrete bricks that were placed in the patio of the facility. The Opus Group which developed and constructed the building, provided $10,000 in matching funds, and the entire sum was added to a scholarship fund that underwrites secondary education for children of TriZetto employees.
With no parking spaces reserved for executives, all underground parking will be auctioned off to employees, raising another $50,000 for the company’s philanthropic causes. To support employees and guests who make their own sustainable choices, car-charging stations will be available to replenish electric car batteries.
