Fidelis Care Announces Capital Region Expansion

Non-Profit Health Plan to Add 40 IT Employees, Relocate to Larger Office

ALBANY, NY--(Marketwired - October 14, 2014) - Fueled by increased membership and organizational growth, Fidelis Care, a Statewide health plan with more than 1.1 million members, announces plans to hire 40 new IT employees at its Albany regional office, and relocate to a larger office space in the area. The positions range from entry-level to management and can be applied for at fideliscare.org/careerday or at Fidelis Care's IT Professionals Career Day on October 18.

"Changes in health care have led to unprecedented IT growth within our organization. We added 40 new IT positions in Albany earlier this year, and the majority of them are now filled. We are expanding further in Albany with 40 additional positions because the talent we're seeing here is impressive," said Martin Krebs, Chief Information Officer.

The available positions fall into the categories of Project Delivery, Development, Infrastructure, Analysis, and Database Administration. Additional positions are expected to be added in the coming months. Fidelis Care offers competitive salaries and generous benefits. As a mission-based organization, it is committed to providing quality, free or affordable health insurance coverage to anyone in need.

Fidelis Care established an Albany regional office in 1997 that has grown to accommodate 150 employees. In November, the office will move from Corporate Woods to 31 British American Boulevard in Airport Park in Latham -- where the opportunity for additional expansion is available.

"By tripling our square footage, the new location meets both our current and future needs," said Mark Griffith, Assistant Vice President, Materials Management and Support Services. "In addition to providing the workspace we need for a growing number of employees, a portion of the building will be dedicated to business continuity."

Fidelis Care's other regional offices are located in Buffalo, Syracuse, and New York City, with satellite offices in Rochester, Poughkeepsie, and Suffern. There are also 13 community office locations across New York State.

All of Fidelis Care's open positions may be applied for online at fideliscare.org. Fidelis Care will also hold an IT Professionals Career Day at 19 British American Blvd. West, Latham, NY 12110 on Saturday, October 18 from 10 AM to 2 PM. More details are available at fideliscare.org/careerday.
