Quantum Health Expansion To Add More Than 500 Jobs At Its Columbus, Ohio Headquarters

05/01/2012
Quantum Health, a health care management company, plans to invest more than $3 million on expansion of its Columbus, Ohio, facility at 7450 Huntington Park Drive, adding more than 525 jobs to its 230 employee workforce.

The firm plans to hire registered nurses and patient service representatives, as well as information technology, marketing, customer engagement and other support positions.

"At Quantum Health, we're on a mission to simplify and transform healthcare in this country. We have been very successful at effectively applying consumer behavior strategies for our healthcare clients," said Kara Trott, Quantum Health's founder.

"The demand for our services grew at an extremely fast pace, and prompted the exploration of expansion options. As a business we evaluated the best location to undertake our growth, either in the Columbus Region or locations outside of Ohio. The support offered through the City of Columbus, Franklin County and the State of Ohio played an important role in our location decision," Trott said. Ultimately this will allow us to continue to provide exceptional service to our clients, resulting in dramatically higher member engagement and greater cost savings."

Kenny McDonald, chief economic officer, Columbus 2020, said "we're proud to see one of the Columbus Region's existing companies make an even longer-term investment in the region, adding hundreds of job opportunities. Our hope is to continue to make the Columbus Region an ideal spot for companies looking to relocate or expand in a stable regional economy."

"Visionary businesses like Quantum Health are what make Columbus the best city for jobs in the Midwest," said Mayor Michael B. Coleman. "This expansion further strengthens our economy while providing new employment opportunities for our residents."

Over the next three years a portion of the region's funding incentives will finance a job training program at the facility. Along with the state, Franklin County is also investing $75,000 towards the program.
