TruBridge to Establish New Site in Schuylkill County
Governor Corbett Announces TruBridge to Establish New Site in Schuylkill County and Create 100 New Jobs
Continuing to advance his JOBS1st PA initiative, Governor Tom Corbett announced today that TruBridge, a provider of business and consulting services, has established a facility in Schuylkill County and is projected to create more than 100 new jobs.
“Companies such as TruBridge continue to see the benefits of bringing their businesses to Pennsylvania,” Gov. Corbett said. “More than 100 new jobs are coming to Schuylkill County and I am pleased to welcome TruBridge to the commonwealth’s growing business community.”
TruBridge has entered into a lease of a 12,394-square-foot site within the Schuylkill Mall in Frackville, Schuylkill County. The company plans to invest more than $270,000 at the new site and anticipates creating more than 100 new jobs over the next three years.
The company received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development that includes up to $306,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits.
”We’re excited to have this expansion take place in Schuylkill County,” said Chris Fowler, President of TruBridge. “This move will allow us to not only help further stimulate the economy in Pennsylvania, but will also allow us to better meet the business needs of community healthcare organizations in this region.”
The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, an experienced group of economic development professionals who report directly to the Governor and work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania in collaboration with the Schuylkill Economic Development Corporation (SEDCO).
“We are thrilled with TruBridge’s decision to locate its service center in our community,” said John Boyer, Chairman of the SEDCO Board of Directors. “It’s a testament to our great workforce and ideal business climate. SEDCO thanks the Pennsylvania CareerLink and Governor’s Action Team for their assistance in recruiting TruBridge to Schuylkill County.”
TruBridge helps community healthcare organizations succeed on their path to performance. The company is focused exclusively on providing business, consulting and managed IT services. TruBridge brings years of expertise in delivering effective solutions created for the unique challenges faced by community healthcare organizations.
In 2012, Gov. Corbett launched JOBS1st PA as a comprehensive roadmap to economic recovery that harnessed the state’s resources and talents to prioritize private-sector job creation and retention. Today, Pennsylvania's unemployment rate is below the national average and at a six-year low, and jobs have been growing on a consistent basis for four years.
