160 New Jobs Coming To Scott County
eHealth Technologies to Create New Customer Support Center
Governor Ralph Northam announced today that eHealth Technologies, Inc. will establish a new customer support center in Scott County. The project is expected to create 160 new jobs and includes $375,000 in capital investment. The Tobacco Commission is supporting this project with a $94,000 Tobacco Region Opportunity Fund grant.
Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission Chairman, Delegate Terry Kilgore said, “eHealth Technologies’ decision to expand its operation to Southwest Virginia underscores the region’s strategic advantages and the strength of our workforce. We are proud to have worked along with InvestSWVA and Mountain Empire Community College to guide eHealth Technologies’ leadership over the last year to ensure they selected Scott County for this key expansion. This project demonstrates that Southwest Virginia is a location of choice companies looking to diversify their operations.”
eHealth Technologies is the leading provider of clinical information services for recently diagnosed, chronically ill patients needing to be admitted for hospital care on an expedited basis in the United States. Headquartered in Rochester, NY, with employees worldwide, eHealth Technologies serves well over half of the nation’s top 100 hospitals, including 17 of the top 20 U.S. News & World Report 2020-2021 Honor Roll Hospitals. eHealth Technologies’ solution enables these institutions to reduce their time from referral to first appointment by as much as 80%. The company’s eHealth Connect® platform offers the easiest and fastest way to get a patient’s external records, images, and pathology slides in the hands of the clinical team. By opening a site in Virginia, eHealth Technologies will further diversify its operations and create system redundancies to benefit its customers. In 2019, Aldrich Capital Partners became the parent company of eHealth Technologies, providing support for business expansion and development.
CEO of eHealth Technologies, Jeff Markin said, “This expansion in Southwest Virginia is the right next step in our strategic growth plan. We appreciate the support received from the Virginia Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission-backed InvestSWVA team, and we are excited to grow our partnerships around the Commonwealth of Virginia. This Scott County expansion will enable eHealth Technologies to strengthen our focus on helping the clinicians we serve get seamless access to the healthcare information they need—when they need it—for the benefit of patients receiving critical care.”
Chairman of the Scott County Board of Supervisors, Danny Mann added, “Scott County is ready to play a key role in eHealth Technologies’ strategic growth plan. We appreciate being part of a team effort over the last year to attract eHealth Technologies to Southwest Virginia as it expands its operation and continues to deliver top-notch service to hospital systems across the country.”
The Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission is committed to developing a diverse economy in the areas we serve. Attracting innovative industry leaders, like eHealth Technologies, to our region is an important part of that mission and demonstrates that rural Virginia can compete when it comes to attracting top employers.
