Jellyfish Health Expands Operations Center In Panama City, Florida

Jellyfish Health, a healthcare technology company, is expanding its operations in Panama City, Florida. The company plans to hire 100 associates.

Dave Dyell, President/CEO of Jellyfish Health, said Jellyfish provides innovative technology that reduces wait times for patients, automates workflow for staff and boosts loyalty to healthcare facilities by creating a better patient experience. This innovative solution works by providing transparency about wait times to the patient through their mobile device.

“Jellyfish Health is all about helping make life easier for patients and the caregivers that take care of them. We bring that same philosophy to the workplace by giving employees an opportunity to explore their passion along with competitive pay and a flexible work schedule. This grant allows us to offer these benefits to even more employees and make a bigger impact on the local economy”, Dyell said.

As an incentive, the company received a $750,000 grant from the Industry Recruitment, Retention and Expansion Fund (IRREF) grant program, which is administered by the University of West Florida Office of Economic Development and Engagement.

"The medical software field brings exactly the kind of business expansion we need in Bay County,” said state Senator Don Gaetz of Niceville. “The Jellyfish project creates 100 jobs paying twice the average wage in our area. The company has a national market and has the potential to grow, prosper and contribute substantially to our community." Crystal Sircy, Executive Vice President/COO of Enterprise Florida, Inc. said, “This is a great example of the strengths Florida has in both the IT and healthcare industries. Innovative companies like Jellyfish Health are demonstrating the ways in which companies are leading their industries and growing across the state.”

This project was made possible through strong partnerships between the University of West Florida, Bay County Economic Development Alliance, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Bay County Board of County Commissioners, City of Panama City, CareerSource Florida, CareerSource Gulf Coast and Gulf Coast State College and Enterprise Florida.

“We are extremely happy that Jellyfish Health has chosen to stay in downtown Panama City and expand its operations here,” said Clint Mizell, Chairman of the Bay County Economic Development Alliance. “This is a company that could have expanded anywhere. The fact that they are creating a significant number of high wage technology jobs in Bay County is a great win for our local economy.”
