Advanced Correctional Healthcare, Inc. will invest $2.5 million to relocate its headquarters from Illinois to Franklin, Tennessee. The company plans to create 58 jobs.
The headquarters facility will be located at 720 Cool Springs Blvd. The company cited the area's lower cost of living in relation to Illinois as incentive to move to the area.
“Advanced Correctional Healthcare is growing, and so are Illinois’ taxes, some of the highest in the nation! Our team looks forward to lower taxes, lower cost of living and top-rated schools. We are deeply grateful for the State of Tennessee and Williamson County’s support. We will work hard to give Tennessee a positive return on its investment in us,” Jessica Young, president and CEO, Advanced Correctional Healthcare noted.
Advanced Correctional Healthcare joins other healthcare companies in the Nashville area such as CoreCivic Inc., Corizon Health and Wellpath.
“We are proud to welcome another headquarters operation to Tennessee. Our low cost of doing business and outstanding workforce are two fundamental factors that drive businesses to Tennessee. I thank ACH for the work it is doing in the healthcare industry and thank the company for its investment in our state,” TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe noted.
Advanced Correctional Healthcare, Inc. is the largest county jail health care provider in the United States. It operates health care teams and customized programs in a variety of correctional settings, including county jails, juvenile detention centers, mental health units, work release centers and drug rehabilitation centers.
“TVA and Middle Tennessee Electric congratulate Advanced Correctional Healthcare on its decision to locate in Williamson County. Helping to attract quality job opportunities for the people of the Valley is fundamental to TVA’s mission of service. We are proud to partner with Williamson Inc. and Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development to help further that mission and support companies, like Advanced Correctional Healthcare’s business success,” John Bradley, TVA senior vice president of Economic Development noted.
Since 2015, TNECD has supported more than 25 economic development projects in Williamson County, resulting in nearly 4,000 job commitments and approximately $379 million in capital investment.
