A healthcare cloud platform provider, hc1.com, Inc., will invest $1.4 million to expand its headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana
, creating up to 62 new jobs by 2017.
The homegrown-Hoosier company will lease and equip a 16,626 square-foot headquarters facility at the Northwest Technology Park in Boone County. The expansion, which will be fully operational this January, will enable the company to scale its healthcare relationship management solution, which currently serves more than 500 healthcare locations around the world.
"We have chosen to expand in Indiana because the state contains all of the key ingredients required to achieve breakthrough success-extremely talented people trained in top universities, strong healthcare leadership and an emerging ecosystem of technology companies that are creating massive value on a global scale," said Brad Bostic, Founder and CEO of hc1.com. "Combined with these strengths, its pro-business initiatives made Indiana the clear choice for the continued expansion of hc1.com."
hc1.com, which currently employs 80 associates, including 70 full-time Indiana employees, has already begun hiring development professionals, operations managers, client relationship managers and sales and marketing specialists.
"Improved healthcare efficiently finds its roots in Hoosier innovation," said Gov. Mike Pence
. "By advancing and simplifying the tools labs and healthcare providers use to keep records and learn from data, companies like hc1.com are increasing our power to provide superior service and care for people across the state and around the world."
As an incentive, Indiana Economic Development Corporation
offered hc1.com, Inc. up to $1 million in conditional tax credits and up to $100,000 in training grants based on the company's job creation plans. These credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. Boone County approved additional incentives at the request of the Boone County Economic Development Corporation
. Also, Elevate Ventures has supported the company through talent recruitment and business development strategy guidance.
"Zionsville is very pleased to see a great company like hc1.com continue to grow and bring more good jobs to our community," said Jeff Papa, Zionsville Town Council president. Zionsville is a suburb northwest of Indianapolis.
