Shared Services Center Expands Fort Smith, Arkansas, Operations Center

Shared Services Center – Fort Smith, a provider of business office support functions for hospitals and healthcare facilities, will expand their presence in Phoenix Center in Fort Smith, Arkansas.

“We are fortunate to have access to a deep talent pool to fill the need for the business services our location provides,” said Shannon White, Vice President of Shared Services Center – Fort Smith. “In addition, the Phoenix Center’s willingness to accommodate our growth and continued support of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission and the Fort Smith Chamber of Commerce allows us to continue to expand on behalf of the hospitals we serve.”

“Shared Services Center is not only creating new jobs, but high-wage jobs that will improve the quality of life for our fellow Arkansans,” said Mike Preston, Executive Director of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission. “Fort Smith is a great example of a community that has prioritized economic development and we see the results of that focus in today’s announcement.”

“The economic impact of these new jobs at Shared Services Center will reach beyond Fort Smith to benefit our state’s economy,” said Governor Asa Hutchinson. “From 45 new jobs at a software engineering company in North Little Rock to these new jobs that will benefit many families in Fort Smith, it’s been a great few days for job creation in Arkansas.”
