Medical services company to bring 70 jobs to downtown Louisville

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- iHealth Solutions, a technology firm that helps doctors and hospitals manage billing and claims, will move it corporate office and about 70 jobs to Meidinger Tower in downtown Louisville this summer, according to Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer's office.

iHealth is based in Reston, Va., according to its website.

The company helps healthcare practices with electronic health records, medical billing and collection, medical coding and medical information technology support, according to a press release from Fischer's office.

"iHealth is the perfect example of why we focus our business development efforts around our business clusters, as it fits into two of our areas of strength, lifelong wellness and aging care and business services,” Fischer said in the release.

“Louisville may be situated 738 miles from Wall Street, but it is at the heart of an active hub for healthcare,” iHealth CEO Venkat Sharma said in the release. “We are excited about setting up our headquarters in Louisville and growing the company nationally – offering technology-enabled services to physician practices as well as hospitals across the United States.”

Meidinger Tower, at S. 4th Street and Muhammad Ali Boulevard, has been hurt by an unusually high amount of vacant office space. The building remains about 40 percent -- or nine floors -- empty, said Mark Wardlaw of NAI Fortis Group, the commerical real estate agent representing the tower.


Wardlaw said iHealth will be taking only about one-seventh of a floor (2,000 square feet).
