Health Management Regional Service Center To Employ 500 Associates In Fort Smith, Arkansas
The project is being called a coordinated effort between the Fort Smith Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Gov. Mike Beebe’s Office, the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, FSM Redevelopment Partners LLC, and Health Management Associates, which is also the parent company for Sparks Regional Medical Center and Summit Medical Center.
"Health Management is consistently looking for ways to improve our patients' experience and we are proud to continue our investment in the Fort Smith region with the development of this new Regional Service Center," said Kerry Gillespie, Executive Vice President at Health Management. "This project would not have been possible without the collaborative efforts of Governor Beebe, the Chamber of Commerce, and the developer and we applaud their vision and determination. We are excited to create additional jobs in the Fort Smith area and reinforce our continued commitment to the economic growth of this community."
"Fort Smith's experienced workforce has been tested by tough economic news, but the arrival of Health Management is just the latest step in its revival," Gov. Beebe said. "Today we celebrate Health Management's investment of 500 jobs in Sebastian County, creating new opportunities for Arkansans ready to work."
"Health Management's decision to locate the Arkansas Regional Service Center in Fort Smith is a testament to our quality of place and workforce. The Fort Smith Chamber continues to promote this community as a great place to do business and it is," said Tim Allen, President of the Fort Smith Regional Chamber of Commerce. "Fort Smith has had its fair share of setbacks over the last couple of years, but I believe our best days are yet to come. This investment is another example of Health Management's commitment to continue being an outstanding corporate citizen to our city."
"The decision announced today by Health Management brings very welcome news to Fort Smith. This nationally recognized company is bringing over 500 excellent new jobs which will have a very positive impact on our city," stated Fort Smith Mayor Sandy Sanders. "Health Management has been very successful nation-wide and I am confident this addition to Fort Smith will prove to be a great partnership with the people of this area."
