KANSAS CITY, Mo., July 31, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- TriWest Healthcare Alliance announced today the company has selected Kansas City, Missouri, to launch a new Health Care Administrative Service Center, creating 500 new jobs in the region. TriWest serves the community health care needs of veterans in 28 states as a partner to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). TriWest administers VA's Patient-Centered Community Care (PC3) program and Veterans Choice Program (VCP).
"We are pleased to have selected Kansas City as we expand our footprint and create new jobs to serve our nation's veterans," said David J. McIntyre, Jr., President and CEO of TriWest. "One of the reasons we selected Kansas City is the strong support of community leaders to increase economic opportunities for veterans, and we are proud to be coming here, where we will ultimately be serving the veterans who call the Midwest home."
TriWest Healthcare Alliance will lease 64,000 square feet at 7930 NW 110th Street in Kansas City, Mo., and will make a multi-million dollar capital investment. The company evaluated multiple locations and favored Kansas City because of the strong support of the state and the city in helping TriWest move quickly to open the site and begin operating, as well as the city's commitment to the Veterans Economic Communities Initiative (VECI).
"We are honored to welcome TriWest Healthcare Alliance to the Kansas City metro," said Bob Marcusse, President and CEO, Kansas City Area Development Council. "The organization's service to our military veterans is important and admirable. They are a welcome addition to our regional business community."
TriWest will begin operations in Kansas City in early September 2015 with hiring beginning immediately. TriWest encourages those who have a desire to serve America's veterans to seek career opportunities at its new Kansas City location and hopes to attract as many veterans as possible to its workforce.
