MCLEAN, Va. – January 21, 2015 – Cognosante today celebrated its expansion into Phoenix, AZ with the grand opening of a state-of-the-art business process outsourcing (BPO) center. The 75,000-square-foot facility will initially house 400 professionals who will provide critical health data services for a key Patient Protection and Affordable Care (ACA) program for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The company is committed to the Phoenix region and plans to continue investing in and growing the center. Cognosante selected Phoenix as its newest location because of the abundance of professional, technical, and educational resources the city offers, all vital to the company’s commitment to providing outstanding value to its customers.
“Thanks to the ACA, millions of American families have access to quality, affordable healthcare. Phoenix will now play an integral role in ensuring that the process of providing that access is both efficient and accurate,” said Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ), representing the state’s 7th district.
“Cognosante’s presence enhances and continues to solidify our vibrant technology sector, which includes Fortune 500 companies, market innovators, and dozens of highly visible corporate and regional headquarters,” said Jeffrey Durbin, Senior Business Development Executive for the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce.
“Cognosante’s unique health IT expertise further enriches the tapestry of Phoenix’s healthcare industry, which is already home to many of the nation’s leading academic, clinical, and research institutions,” said Councilwoman Kate Gallego (District 8).
“No matter where our employees are located, they share a passion for our mission and take great pride in their work – and our Phoenix staff is no exception,” said Michele Kang, CEO of Cognosante. “We are thrilled that this latest expansion brings us to Phoenix, where we hope to grow this facility, house and support new projects and programs, and create a leading center of excellence in health IT and BPO.”
