Birmingham-based Pack Health, announced plans this week to nearly double the space of its headquarter facilities in The Magic City and add at least 200 full-time employee positions.
Local and State Incentives
The expansion of the headquarters is based on economic development incentives made possible through the State of Alabama and Jefferson County, as well as local non-educational tax abatements.
“It is our pleasure to work with the State of Alabama to grow Pack Health in Birmingham,” said Mazi Rasulnia, PhD, Founder and Vice President of Pack Health. “Beyond our pride at what we have accomplished in the last few years, we are extremely proud to add 200 positions to Jefferson County and expand our capabilities in connecting diagnostic insights to our members managing chronic health conditions.”
The news marks a year since Secaucus, NJ-based Quest Diagnostics, the nation’s leading provider of diagnostic information services, announced plans to acquire Pack Health in January 2022 to better connect diagnostic insights to actions that generate greater value, outcomes and quality, empowering affordable care.
“Pack Health represents one of Birmingham’s most successful startups, and it’s rewarding to see Quest Diagnostics validate that success by launching growth plans that solidify Pack Health’s future in its hometown,” said Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce. “This is great news for Birmingham and a testament to the vitality of the region’s start-up ecosystem.”
