Medical Answering Services will expand its operations and create 80 additional call-center and management jobs at its Syracuse, New York
, headquarters. The company said it will be hiring administrative, computer programming and field supervisors in the central part of the Empire State.
“We are proud to announce these jobs, and continue our growth right here in Central New York. We have some of the best employees in the state, and earning this latest contract is a testament to their hard work,” Russ Maxwell, President of Medical Answering Services, LLC said. “I want to thank Governor Cuomo and our local electeds. Without the help of County Executive Joanie Mahoney, Senator John DeFrancisco, Senator David Valesky and Assemblyman Bill Magnarelli this announcement wouldn’t have been possible.”
“The expansion of Medical Answering Services is an important development for both Central New York and New York State as a whole,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. “This is a company that has helped state and local governments save an average of $1 million per month in Medicaid expenditures, and it has done so by employing and training hard-working New Yorkers. Combining job growth with cost savings is a great way to move the state’s economy forward. I am pleased to welcome these new jobs to the 3,500 created in Central New York in the past year, and look forward to the company’s increased role in helping the state achieve savings from Medicaid expenses.”
"This announcement is great news for Onondaga County," said Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney. "Medical Answering Services could have expanded anywhere, and we appreciate very much that you chose to bring your new jobs to Syracuse. Thank you to Russ Maxwell for all you have done to grow your business locally and thank you to Governor Cuomo for focusing on cutting the cost of Medicaid and for doing business with such a great local company."
