Springfield region attracts workers’ compensation care management company
One Call Care Management, a leading provider of workers’ compensation care management services, has selected the Springfield region to expand its operations. The Jacksonville, FL-based company is utilizing an existing Springfield building and will create 100 new full-time jobs with benefits by the end of 2017, with additional growth expected in the future.
One Call will begin operating in late summer from the 65,000 sq. ft. former UnitedHealthcare facility in south Springfield owned by Davis Properties. With locations throughout the country, One Call was attracted to our region’s central location and established healthcare industry. Working with Springfield’s Partnership for Economic Development, which includes the Chamber/SBDC, City of Springfield, City Utilities, and Greene County, One Call ultimately chose the Springfield region after finding a move-in ready facility that met their needs, as well as the right talent.
“One Call utilizes clinical oversight to help create better outcomes for employers and injured workers, so making sure we can hire and train candidates in Springfield who can provide this kind of specialized service was critical to our decision. Harnessing Springfield’s robust healthcare talent pool and finding an available ‘plug and play’ building in Springfield meant we could fast track our new service center for our customers,” said Chris Watson, chief operating officer of One Call Care Management.
Attracting new and expanding businesses like One Call helps drive economic growth in the Springfield region. We will continue marketing our region’s business climate, infrastructure and workforce to spur capital investment and job creation, while also encouraging the development of new available sites and buildings.
