CHICAGO, June 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- NextLevel Health (NextLevel), a community based Medicaid health plan, formally announces the opening of its new office location at 3019 W. Harrison St. NextLevel relocated from downtown to the East Garfield Park neighborhood to be closer to the members it serves. NextLevel employs approximately 61 employees including executives, clinical, call center and administrative staff members, most of who are based at the West Side location and live in the communities nearby.
NextLevel received recognition from its new Alderman regarding the recent office opening. "We welcome NextLevel to the 28th Ward," said 28th Ward Alderman, Jason C. Ervin. "The company is stimulating our local economy by making real jobs accessible to people who live on the West side and by providing excellent care coordination for its members."
"NextLevel plans to be a strong presence in the economic development and the improvement of healthcare outcomes for community residents of the West Side of Chicago," said Dr. Cheryl Whitaker, Chief Executive Officer of NextLevel Health. "Being close to our members helps to solidify our community-based model in the minds of our members. We have already had several members come by to meet their care coordinator!"
"Historically, healthcare companies have been absent within the communities of many underserved populations," said Robert Jordan, a member of the NextLevel Health Board of Directors. "It's a dynamic message to the community that says we're here to help."
NextLevel's office has 6,200 square feet of space including a large conference room and a "member lounge" where members can come by to sit with their care coordinator or get questions answered about their Medicaid Health Plan. The office is open from 9am – 5pm Monday through Friday. The call center takes calls 24 hours/day, 7 days a week. NextLevel also has locations on the South Side of Chicago and in the South Suburbs.
