A relatively new healthcare data company is setting up operations in downtown Greenville, hoping it will create 300 new jobs in the next year.
ChartSpan Medical Technologies, Inc., announced Thursday it will establish operations in downtown Greenville. The $3.2 million investment will convert nearly 100,000 square feet of officespace along the city’s Main Street.
The healthcare company was founded in 2013 as a participant in Greenville’s NEXT Innovation Center. It specializes in patient engagement technology and medical managed services, so that doctors and patients can engage with each other through mobile applications, portals and chronic care services.
“This is an unbelievably exciting moment in ChartSpan’s evolution. We have a deep love and affinity for Greenville,” company CEO and co-founder Jon-Michial Carter said in a release announcing the move. “Our ability to expand in the downtown area is a reflection of a remarkably strong and collaborative partnership established for businesses in the NEXT program and supported by the Greenville Area Development Corporation.”
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project.
