STAMFORD, Conn. -- CareCentrix is coming to Stamford as it expands its operations in Connecticut.
CareCentrix will open a new office in Stamford; it was the fifth company to participate in Gov. Dannel Malloy’s “First Five” program in June 2012. First Five is a job creation initiative administered by the state Department of Economic and Community Development.
“First Five has given us the tools we need to create good paying jobs with good benefits for Connecticut residents,” said Malloy in a release. “The health care industry has been a major driver of our economy in recent years. That’s why we are excited by CareCentrix’s decision to not only keep its headquarters in Connecticut but continue to grow here, which means more innovative partnerships in the health services field, millions in new capital investment, and hundreds of jobs for our residents.”
CareCentrix announced plans in 2012 to relocate its corporate headquarters from East Hartford to Hartford, a project expected to create hundreds of new jobs by 2017 and retain its current employee base. In addition to taking new office space in Stamford to support its growth, CareCentrix has created more than 100 new jobs in Connecticut and invested millions in its Hartford project since June 2012, according to the release.
“When we partnered with the state in the Governor’s First Five program, we knew that Connecticut was the right place for our company,” said John P. Driscoll, CareCentrix CEO, in the release. “CareCentrix is extremely well-positioned to improve patient outcomes by ensuring that millions of patients receive quality care in their homes, and we applaud the Governor and the state for helping to create an economic environment which will enable us to continue our rapid growth.”
