Grand Rapids, MI (Nov. 9, 2017) – MedData, a MEDNAX (NYSE: MD) company and a leading provider of technology-enabled management services for hospitals and health systems, today hosted a grand-opening celebration for its state-of-the-art patient services center in the Grand Rapids, Mich., community.
Members of local and regional government were in attendance, including leaders from Cascade Township, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, the Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce, and The Right Place. Township Supervisor Rob Beahan also issued a special proclamation declaring Nov. 9 as MedData Appreciation Day.
“This expansive center provides the scalability and technological advantages that our clients and their patients require to meet the many challenges associated with the continued growth of out-of-pocket healthcare costs,” said Ann Barnes, president and CEO of MedData. “Our philosophy of treating patients with dignity and respect throughout their healthcare financial experience on behalf of our clients is demonstrated every day by our dedicated team, right here in this wonderful community.”
The 100,000-square-foot remodeled portion of the facility houses call center operations with around 300 patient services employees and can accommodate future growth up to 640. MedData offers generous starting wages with benefits and no previous experience is required.
“Our ambitious corporate investment in the Michigan market reflects our confidence and excitement in the MedData business and the wonderful talent pool across the Grand Rapids community,” says Vivian Lopez-Blanco, chief financial officer of MEDNAX.
The new center has a modern look and feel with high-tech workstations for employees. Other features and benefits include an in-house gymnasium, ample on-site parking, direct connection to public transportation routes, proximity to the highway and airport, and a future on-site day care center.
Sustained business growth required MedData to expand operations in order to meet the rising patient responsibility for out-of-pocket healthcare costs and to better serve hospitals and health systems nationwide. The spacious new facility will enable MedData to grow as its clients’ businesses grow.
“We look forward to being part of the bright future for Cascade Township and the entire area,” Barnes said.
