OurHealth, an integrated on-site health management company, plans to expand its Indianapolis headquarters and create up to 450 new high-wage jobs by 2018. The homegrown-Hoosier company will invest $19.96 million, among other initiatives, to more than double the size of its corporate headquarters, leasing, renovating and equipping an additional 10,000 additional square feet of office space in Indianapolis.
OurHealth headquarters are currently located at OneAmerica Tower in downtown Indianapolis. The company also plans to lease a network of 3,500 square-foot clinics across Indiana, providing healthcare services for employers of all sizes. The company plans to begin hiring certified medical assistants, health coaches, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and doctors in June.
“We are in a unique position to change the way healthcare is delivered,” said Ben Evans, Co-founder/CEO of OurHealth. “Employers across Indiana have experienced nearly uncontrollable increases in their healthcare costs. Along with the monetary benefits recognized by Indiana employers, OurHealth’s commitment to wellness and prevention creates happier and healthier Hoosier employees. Our commitment to healthcare innovation enables us to attract and keep top talent, offering a fantastic runway for OurHealth’s future growth.”
“Innovative solutions in healthcare are developing right here in Indiana, drawing the nation’s eyes directly to the Hoosier State,” said Governor Mike Pence. “OurHealth is a key partner in promoting Hoosier health, empowering individuals to take control of their options in a consumer-driven marketplace. In part because of their efforts, Indiana’s workforce continues to grow stronger with a focus on wellness and a higher quality of life proving Indiana is a state that works.”
As an incentive, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered OurHealth up to $4,750,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $200,000 in training grants based on the company's job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Indianapolis will consider additional incentives at the request of Develop Indy, a business unit of the Indy Chamber.
“We’re seeing many Indy-headquartered companies experiencing exponential growth this year and OurHealth is near the top of that list with this expansion,” said Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard. “As they enter these new markets, the core of operations for OurHealth will benefit our local skilled workforce. This gives us an opportunity to show companies across the U.S. that our welcoming business climate and talent creates an ideal environment for their company to consider Indianapolis for future growth.”
