Convey Health Solutions Eyes Chooses Lenexa, Kansas, for Distribution Hub

08/02/2018
Convey Health Solutions, a leading provider of specialized healthcare technology and services for government-sponsored markets, will open a new distribution facility in Lenexa, Kansas. The company plans to create more than 40 jobs in the Kansas City region.

With the expansion of 38,000-sq.-ft. centrally located in Kansas, the new facility will inventory, track, and ship OTC products and supplies nationwide to Medicare and Medicaid members. Convey’s OTC benefits program is designed to help members better manage their day-to-day health while at home, especially for those who are chronically ill and want to maintain independence.

“As we continue to provide end-to-end OTC solutions for major health plans in the Medicare and Medicaid markets, we want to operate in a central location to provide better service to our clients and their members,” said Jonathan Starr, Executive Vice President at Convey. “Convey's OTC benefit administration services are already supported by a robust and purpose-built technology and will now utilize a technology-focused distribution facility that can economically and efficiently deliver OTC products to members anywhere in the continental United States in 3 days.”

As an incentive, Convey is experiencing rapid growth in its Over-The-Counter supplemental benefits business. Shipping volume is forecasted to grow more than 50 percent in 2019, requiring additional capacity.

The new facility in the Kansas City region will employ state-of-the-art shipping technology designed to increase efficiency and streamline the distribution process. With the opening of the Kansas site, Convey’s OTC shipping capacity will more than triple.

“Our state’s central location always makes Kansas the prime choice for companies looking to locate a distribution center, and combined with the Kansas City area’s already strong concentration of healthcare service companies, Convey Health Solutions couldn’t have picked a better location for its new facility,” said Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer, M.D. “We are excited to have this pioneering technology company expanding in Kansas and look forward to our continued partnership.”

“It is always exciting to welcome a fast-growing company like Convey Health Solutions to our region,” said Tim Cowden, President & CEO, Kansas City Area Development Council. “The KC region continues to rise to the top of the list of cities that are ideal for logistics, supply chain and distribution operations and we’re honored to be the newest home for Convey.”
