Green Circle Health, a provider of health care management and wellness platforms, will locate a new Client Services Center in Carmel, IN, creating up to 125 new jobs by 2022. The Florida-based company will invest nearly $1 million to lease and furnish office space in Indiana over the next five years.
“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,” said Dinesh Sheth, chief executive officer and founder of Green Circle Health. “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.”
Founded in 2013, Green Circle Health launched its new patient-to-provider communications gateway in early 2016, providing a web or mobile-based infrastructure for users to manage their treatment plans, track real-time health vitals and participate in customized health and wellness challenges. Primarily serving employers, insurers, managed care organizations and health systems, the company’s services encourage employees and their families to make meaningful lifestyle changes and lead healthier lives.
Green Circle Health recently secured a client with more than 80,000 employees, and in 2016 began offering its services to Medicaid recipients at a large managed care provider. Green Circle Health was selected as a semifinalist for the Mayo Clinic’s THINK BIG Challenge and won the Consumer Health Data Aggregator Challenge held by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology in 2016.
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Simple Healthcare LLC (dba Green Circle Health) up to $1 million in conditional tax credits and up to $131,250 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. The incentives are performance-based, meaning until employees are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives.
“Green Circle Health had its choice of many states to locate its new Client Services Center, but it chose Indiana for a reason,” said Governor Eric Holcomb. “Over the last decade, Indiana has built the most affordable, growth-oriented business climate in the country. As a result, tech-enabled health firms like Green Circle Health are thriving in Indiana, taking full advantage of Hoosiers’ education, skills and drive for innovation. It’s only fitting that Green Circle Health joins this growing industry here in Indiana, and we welcome them.”
“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,” said Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard. “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. We look forward to watching you grow and playing a key role in your future success.”
Green Circle Health is the latest health care tech firm to announce its plans to expand in Indiana. In August, biopharmaceuticals and medical technologies consulting firm DK Pierce & Associates broke ground on the company’s new headquarters in Zionsville, with plans to create 23 new high-wage jobs. TriMedx, a provider of health care technology management services, announced in November that it was expanding in Indianapolis, adding 108 new jobs.
