MicroHealth Expands Operations In Fairfax County, Virginia

07/11/2017
MicroHealth, a provider of health information technology for federal and commercial health organizations, will invest $395,000 to expand its IT operation in Fairfax County, Virginia. The company plans to create 65 new jobs.

“We are pleased to be expanding MicroHealth by partnering with Fairfax County and the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, which have helped us grow and obtain talent from a variety of sources,” said Dr. Frank Tucker, CEO of MicroHealth. “MicroHealth is proud to contribute to Fairfax County and the Commonwealth of Virginia’s economy as it continues to diversify and grow, particularly in this important industry.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership will support MicroHealth’s new job creation through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program. VJIP provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs or experiencing technological change to support employee training activities.

“Expanding this Commonwealth’s position as a global leader in the IT sector is a critical component of our mission to diversify and build the new Virginia economy,” said Governor Terry McAuliffe. “The Commonwealth is a world-class center for advanced communications companies, and MicroHealth has benefitted from the first-rate tech talent Fairfax County and Northern Virginia offer. We are proud to help this veteran-owned business expand and continue its important work in Fairfax County.”

“MicroHealth has demonstrated impressive success in Virginia in its short lifetime, and was ranked on the prestigious Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Companies last year,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Todd Haymore. “Nearly 50,000 jobs have been added in our IT sector over the past 10 years, a strong testament to the Commonwealth’s robust labor pool, business climate, and higher education system. The Virginia Jobs Investment Program will be a great resource for MicroHealth as the company adds to its workforce by more than 50 percent.”

“Companies involved in health IT and health information management recognize that they need an IT-focused workforce in order to succeed. The Economic Development Authority has been pleased to help MicroHealth expand its operations in Fairfax County to take advantage of the assets the county offers technology businesses of all kinds,” said Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., President & CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority. “I am also very pleased to see another service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses thrive in our community.”
