Quantum Health Commits to Adding 525 Columbus Jobs

COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - Apr 30, 2012) - Care coordination innovator Quantum Health, Inc. announced today at a joint news conference with Governor John Kasich, Mayor Michael B. Coleman and County Commissioner Paula Brooks that it will maintain its headquarters in Columbus and expand local operations to create at least 525 full-time jobs, more than doubling its "healthcare workforce of the future" over the next three years.

Responding to the rapidly growing demand for its high-tech, patient-centric services, Quantum Health expects to generate an additional $24.6 million in annual payroll (beyond its $11 million existing payroll) by hiring additional experienced nurses and Patient Service Representatives (PSRs), as well as information technology, marketing, customer engagement and other support positions. Recognized repeatedly as one of the best places to work in Ohio and across the nation, Quantum Health had been evaluating economic development offers outside of Ohio before committing to undertake its growth in Columbus.

"At Quantum Health, we're on a mission to simplify and transform healthcare in this country and we're humbled that the State of Ohio, the County Commissioners and the City of Columbus have caught our excitement and our vision," said Founder and CEO Kara Trott. "As we enter our 14th year in business, we're going to continue to grow right here in Columbus by recruiting and training the next generation of healthcare knowledge workers. Their compensation will average $22.37 per hour and we'll train them to really care about people as we work together to continue taking the unnecessary cost and confusion out of health care."

"Visionary businesses like Quantum Health are what make Columbus the best city for jobs in the Midwest," Mayor Michael B. Coleman said. "This expansion further strengthens our economy while providing new employment opportunities for our residents. I want to thank Quantum, Franklin County and the State of Ohio for helping to make this possible."

Franklin County Commissioner Paula Brooks added, "As the county, city, state and Columbus 2020 work together to create opportunities for business growth here in Central Ohio, we are also investing in ways to help companies train and grow their workforce. In a unique role, the County's $75,000 investment will go directly into job training at Quantum Health. Our strategy to attract new businesses and retain the companies we already have in Franklin County is ultimately about putting and keeping people in good-paying, stable jobs."

Quantum Health has already begun to actively recruit the industry's most talented people through local job fairs, as well as hosting a hiring open house and an online virtual job fair. Over the next 33 months, Quantum Health will hire both hourly and salaried employees to be located at, or nearby its Huntington Park Drive headquarters. Upcoming recruitment events include:

  • May 8, 2012 - The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business Job Fair from 11:30 am to 3 pm.
  • May 10, 2012 - The Quantum Health "By Invitation Only" Open House at the QH HQ from 4 pm to 7 pm.
  • May 13-19, 2012 - The Quantum Health "Virtual" Job Fair - online hiring event.
  • June 2012 - Additional Open House Events - dates to be announced.
