Florida-based Green Circle Health announced plans to bring 125 new jobs to Carmel by 2022 at its client services center, which opened in Carmel Jan. 1. Seven people have been hired to date.
“This past year, GCH signed a contract with an employer of more than 80,000 employees to provide remote health and wellness advice/consulting,” said Dinesh Sheth, chief executive officer and founder of Green Circle Health. “The current seven new hires at the CSC will be focused on providing remote monitoring for GCH’s new client as well as existing clientele.”
As the company continues to grow and take on additional clients, the call center will be expanded and additional staff added. The center provides remote health care and coaching for GCH Platform users anywhere in the U.S., helping “improve the coordination of care and treatment of chronic disease and illness,” according to Sheth.
“It is essential in today’s modern, technologically driven society that employees have greater control over their medical information and the best available support to become responsible consumers of health services,” Sheth stated in a press release. “To expand our business operations into Indiana is a powerful step for us in increasing customer relations and bringing jobs to local communities. Carmel and the state of Indiana have a thriving ecosystem to support information and medical technology driven companies like Green Circle Health.”
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered the company up to $1 million in conditional tax credits and up to $131,250 in training grants based on its job creation plans. The company invested nearly $1 million to lease and furnish office space in Indiana over the next five years. The current space is at 9640 Commerce Dr., and GCH will expand as staff is added.
“The City of Carmel is pleased to welcome Green Circle Health to a growing family of medical technology companies that have chosen to locate a part of their operations here in Carmel,” Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard stated in a press release. “Our low taxes, great public schools and many amenities such as outstanding parks, trails and cultural districts have helped create an attractive city in which to expand a successful company.”
According to IEDC, Indiana’s business climate is ranked fifth in the nation and first in the Midwest by “Chief Executive Magazine.” Within the technology sector, the Indianapolis region ranks fifth in the nation for tech job growth, according to commercial real estate tracking firm CBRE.
