Conifer to double office space and add 500 new jobs
FRISCO, Texas – Conifer Health Solutions, a leading healthcare business process management services provider, held a ground breaking ceremony for its new headquarters and service center which will be located in Duke Bridges Office Park at the intersection of the Dallas North Tollway and Warren Pkwy. in Frisco, Texas. In 2012, Conifer Health experienced tremendous growth, expanding its national footprint to 9,000 employees, operating in 40 states, serving over 600 clients, and managing the care of over 3 million lives.
The new four-story building, which is being developed by Duke Realty, will provide 200,000 square feet of built-to-suit office space. The facility gives Conifer Health the space it needs to double its Frisco workforce to more than 1,100 employees, adding an additional 500 new jobs, which will rank the company among the top three corporate employers in Frisco. Conifer Health currently leases 100,000 square feet of office space in Hall Office Park in two buildings at 2401 Internet Blvd. and 2811 Internet Blvd.
Conifer President and CEO, Stephen Mooney said, “Today’s groundbreaking is more than just a ceremony. It is truly a milestone for Conifer Health, made possible through the help and support of our partners and the City of Frisco. We are truly looking forward to moving into our new headquarters, which will be home to our Frisco Service Center, our Revenue Cycle Solution and the Conifer Health leadership team.” Conifer Health Solutions will move into its new location in spring 2014.
“Conifer engaged our team last year with an aggressive timeframe to find a new location,” said Steve Thelen, Managing Director, Jones Lang LaSalle, a property management and investment management services company. “We explored options across the Metroplex, but the Duke Bridges location best met Conifer Health’s needs and provided flexibility for continued growth.”
“We see Conifer’s decision to move forward with their new facility as further evidence of the increased activity the North Dallas office market is experiencing, and we believe this project will create great momentum for Duke Bridges where we still have three sites available for future development,” Jeff Thornton, Senior Vice President, Duke Realty, a commercial real estate company.
“We are working hand-in-hand with the Conifer leadership to create a workplace that will take their organization into the future by supporting their brand, their mission and their people,” said Lindsay Wilson, Principal, Corgan, an architecture and interior design firm. The new building will feature an employee training center, conference center, and a parking garage.
“We look forward to Conifer Health’s expansion, which is expected to eventually bring more than 500 additional jobs to our thriving community. We welcome those employees, many of whom will not only be working here, but will also call Frisco home,” said James Gandy, President of the Frisco Economic Development Corporation (FEDC). In 2012, the FEDC entered into agreements with 12 companies to assist them in moving to or expanding their corporate headquarters in Frisco.
