Electronic Caregiver Inc., a telehealth technology company, will expand operations with the addition of 770 employees at its headquarters in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
"Electronic Caregiver Designs, develops, and delivers innovative telehealth products and services for the aging and chronically ill and the dedicated clinicians and caregivers that provide support. The resources provided by the Economic Development Department via LEDA will help drive the continued expansion of our employee base and operating facilities. Headquartered in Las Cruces, ECG is proud to create high-paying jobs, expand career choices for residents, and strengthen the economic base of Southern New Mexico," company founder and CEO Anthony Dohrmann said.
As an incentive the company received $1 million from the State of New Mexico’s LEDA job-creation fund and a pledge from the City of Las Cruces for an additional $235,000. The company also qualified for financial assistance with job training through the state’s Job Training Incentive Program (JTIP).
“This is an innovative company that is transforming home healthcare,” Cabinet Secretary Alicia J. Keyes said. “State assistance means that Electronic Caregiver can remain in New Mexico, keeping skilled professionals living and pursuing careers in our state.”
The Mesilla Valley Economic Development Alliance (MVEDA), through its Retention & Expansion Support Program, has been providing technical assistance to Electronic Caregiver through multiple rounds of the company’s expansion. This has included funding from the N.M. Economic Development Closing Fund, a grant administered by MVEDA and the Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico.
“Economic growth is not just about attracting new companies, but also assuring there are tools in place to support the growth and success of those like ECG who have already made significant investments into the region,” Davin Lopez, president and CEO of MVEDA, said.
Electronic Caregiver Inc. offers remote patient monitoring, chronic care management, 24/7 virtual visits, health coaching, and care coordination to patients and providers throughout the United States. The brain of Electronic Caregiver’s system is a cloud-based platform (PaaS) that manages, analyzes, and distributes actionable data to clinicians for optimal patient care.
“Electronic Caregiver is changing the landscape of healthcare and doing it from right here in Las Cruces. We are very fortunate they have chosen our city to continue to grow and I am glad the City of Las Cruces can support them in this effort,” City of Las Cruces Economic Development Director Elizabeth Teeters said.
