Med-Enroll To Establish Headquarters-Processing Center in Florence, South Carolina
The company’s facility, a headquarters and processing center, will be located in Florence’s historic Rainwater Building at 151 West Evans Street. The 15,000-square-foot historic building, which the company is currently preparing to have restored, is positioned in the heart of downtown Florence.
Med-Enroll is a startup service firm focused on helping its clients find low-cost healthcare solutions. Med-Enroll will achieve this by educating its clients’ employees on public healthcare options, screening eligible employees in coverage as well as managing ongoing reporting requirements. Groundbreaking on the restoration project is expected to take place in February. However, hiring for the new positions is expected to begin immediately.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved a $650,000 set aside grant to Florence County to assist with real property improvements. The council has also approved job development credits related to the project.
“The State of South Carolina and local officials in Florence have truly shown us their commitment to driving job creation and how business friendly South Carolina can be. We are excited to be starting our venture in Florence and hope that our business will not only provide a positive economic impact in the region, but also serve as a business leader in helping drive the economic redevelopment of downtown Florence,” said Kerstin Nemec, President of Med-Enroll, Inc.
“It’s always exciting when a startup company decides to put its roots down in our state. Med-Enroll’s $3.5 million investment and the creation of more than 150 new jobs is great news for the Florence community, and we look forward to supporting them as they grow in our state,” said Governor Nikki Haley.
