Avizia Expands Fairfax County, Virginia, Operations Center

08/07/2017
Avizia, a leading provider of system-wide telehealth solutions, will expand its operations center in Fairfax County, Virginia.

“Virginia is the perfect home for a growth stage company like Avizia,”said Mike Baird, CEO & Founder of Avizia. “Our company has access to a fantastic pool of talent and enjoys a supportive business community. And because Avizia operates in a regulated market, it has been crucial to be close to policy discussions.”

Virginia Economic Development Partnership will support Avizia’s new job creation through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program. The expansion will create 27 new jobs. VJIP provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs or experiencing technological change to support employee training activities.

According to state officials, as a business incentive supporting economic development, VJIP reduces the human resource costs of new and expanding companies. VJIP is state-funded, demonstrating Virginia’s commitment to enhancing job opportunities for its citizens.

“I want to congratulate Avizia on its impressive growth in Fairfax County and for contributing to Virginia’s renowned technology sector,” said Governor Terry McAuliffe. “The Commonwealth boasts a stellar turnout of sought-after college graduates each year and to retain that talent, we work every day with our private sector partners to help provide meaningful, well-paid jobs in ever-growing fields like healthcare IT. As we diversify and build the new Virginia economy, we recognize Avizia’s contribution to the growth of the critical industries of the 21st century.”

“It’s exciting to watch a growing, Virginia-founded company advance technology to expand healthcare solutions and delivery options, positively impacting the industry as a whole,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Todd Haymore.

“With a direct economic output of nearly $44 billion, Virginia’s IT sector is booming, particularly in Fairfax County. Thanks to our cutting-edge technology infrastructure and acclaimed higher education institutions, the Commonwealth is a hub for the IT industry, and an ideal home for groundbreaking companies like Avizia. We look forward to the company’s next chapter in Virginia,” he added.

“It is gratifying to see Avizia growing in Fairfax County because of the cutting-edge telehealth technology it is deploying and the important work it is doing to improve medical care,” said Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., President & CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority. “The success of Avizia here also is gratifying because it is an example of the growing health-related sector in a Fairfax County economy that is becoming more diversified every year.”
