Gov. Andy Beshear announced that Physician Care Coordination Consultants LLC (PC3 Health), a health care startup, is growing its Jefferson County operations with a $2.5 million investment to relocate within the county and create 21 new full-time jobs at an average hourly wage of over $108 per hour, including benefits.
“Kentucky has become a hub for health care providers and supporting companies, thanks in part to companies like PC3 Health, which choose to grow and expand its business here,” said Gov. Beshear. “I want to note how many new health care jobs this project is bringing to the region and congratulate PC3 Health and Louisville on this fantastic expansion.”
To accommodate the job growth, the company will expand from a 3,600-square-foot to a 7,500-square-foot office space in Jeffersontown. New jobs created include physician advisors, administrative support staff, case managers and data analysts. The move is expected to be completed by June 2024.
“We are excited to be a part of the commonwealth’s economic development plan. It is our mission to provide strategic guidance and clinical expertise to health care organizations to navigate the complexities of payor relationships, utilization and case management,” said PC3 Health managing partner Karan Shah, M.D. “We have provided exceptional value to our current hospital partners and patients while focusing on cultivating new partner engagements. Further, we aim to create a workplace that promotes work-life balance and celebrates community engagement and personal achievements.”
PC3 Health is an innovative provider-owned company that excels in utilization and case management services for hospitals, which helps to decrease observation and claim denial rates and increase hospitals’ financial performance. PC3 Health currently employs three full-time staffers as well as one part-time staffer in Jefferson County.
Louisville Mayor Craig Greenberg spoke on the importance of health care startups: “By fostering homegrown startups, Louisville will continue to attract skilled talent and build our economy in forward-thinking ways. By championing health care startups, in particular, Louisville continues to cement its position as a national leader in health and aging innovation. That is why support for entrepreneurs is a key pillar of our bold new economic development strategic plan, ‘Growing Louisville Together,’ and why we are happy to join the state in supporting PC3 Health’s expansion.”
Jeffersontown Mayor Carol Pike mentioned the small-business presence in the area: “Jeffersontown has always supported local businesses and has championed an entrepreneurial spirit by promoting an economic development climate that would foster new businesses and local startups. Jeffersontown has a strong business environment for the health and life sciences industry, and we welcome and support PC3 Health’s relocation to Jeffersontown. As we move forward to implement our economic development strategy, it’s companies like PC3 Health that support that vision. We are excited to join with Gov. Beshear and the Cabinet for Economic Development, along with Louisville Metro, in supporting the expansion of PC3 Health.”
