Blue Cross and Blue Shield Opens Operations Hub In Columbus, Georgia
The new facility will house approximately 1500 employees and will be BCBSGa's main hub for servicing its nearly 3 million members with healthcare plans, including medical, dental, life and specialty programs.
"This new building sends a strong message that BCBSGa wants to best serve its customers, employees and community," says Matt Connolly, Vice President of Development for The Molasky Group. "They've created a quality environment with a workplace that supports its mission as the largest and longest-standing health insurer in the state. And as a major reinvestment in the Columbus community, it demonstrates a cooperative business climate conducive to economic growth and business development."
The new three story facility will replace an existing facility that BCBSGa has owned since 1958 and a smaller leased facility in the Muscogee Technology Park and brings together the largest collection of BCBSGa employees of any single location in Georgia. The building will feature two wings connected by an atrium. It has an outdoor patio, a fitness center and a 1.15-mile walking path.
Partners in the project were the Columbus Consolidated Government, the Development Authority of Columbus, Georgia, and the Greater Columbus Chamber of Commerce. "The structure that Columbus has is unique as it allows for a streamlined process from permitting to Certificate of Occupancy. And, the Columbus Chamber's economic development team was with us every step of the way," Connolly said.
