HCTec will continue to expand its operations in Hohenwald, TN with a more than $500,000 investment. The healthcare IT workforce service provider will create over 100 jobs in Lewis County over the next five years.
“Investing in developing Tennessee’s workforce is a key initiative for HCTec,” said HCTec CEO Bill Grana. “Our hospital IT executive clients rely on us to provide highly skilled people who are trained and knowledgeable in today’s modern EHR software and systems. The Tennessee Workforce Development Grant program is critical in helping us source and train new HCTec team members, enabling us to grow our staff there to more than 60 in just 18 months. We look forward to continuing our partnership and growing our Hohenwald operations during the next several years.”
With its headquarters in Brentwood, TN, HCTec helps hospitals nationwide reduce operating costs, improve quality and optimize labor forces with highly specialized healthcare IT skills staffing, project-based consulting and application-managed services support. Opened in 2017, HCTec’s Hohenwald service center provides a 24/7 Service Desk offerings, including navigation, support and troubleshooting of electronic health record (EHR) applications such as Epic, Cerner, Meditech and Allscripts to hospital staff, patients, physicians and clinicians.
With this expansion, HCTec will hire additional team members and complete physical plant improvements to its current facility in Hohenwald to keep pace with growing demand. As the company continues to grow, HCTec plans on providing more specialized technical support from the service center in Lewis County.
“We are dedicated to creating great jobs in our rural communities, and with the investment from HCTec, Lewis County will continue to see economic growth,” said Gov. Bill Lee. “I thank HCTec for creating more than 100 jobs in Hohenwald and look forward to seeing this company continue to succeed in Lewis County.”
The healthcare and life sciences industry in Tennessee is one of the state’s biggest industries. Since 2010, the state has seen nearly 10 percent growth in the sector with more than 900 healthcare and life sciences companies located in Tennessee.
“Tennessee’s healthcare industry continues to see major growth with more than 360,000 Tennesseans employed in the healthcare and life sciences sector,” said Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe. “I appreciate HCTec for taking advantage of our strong healthcare sector and choosing to expand in Hohenwald by adding new jobs and continued investment in its Lewis County service center.”
