SIP program brings MedXM, 400 jobs to OKC
Mobile Medical Examination Inc. (MedXM), a national leader in the design and implementation of preventive care technology and in-home health risk assessments, recently announced their expansion into Oklahoma City to house additional support for MedXM outreach initiatives. Because of the availability of funds from Oklahoma City’s Strategic Investment Program, the new outreach center will aim to provide 400 full-time jobs over the course of five years in the Oklahoma City community.
“Oklahoma City’s business-friendly environment is what attracts companies, but it is the SIP funds that allow them to commit to our community and create jobs for our residents,” said Roy H. Williams, CCE, president and CEO of the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber. “We are confident that MedXM will grow in our community and will provide a return on investment to our taxpayers.”
For the past five years, MedXM has experienced substantial growth and plans for the trend to continue. The new Oklahoma City facility will be MedXM’s second-largest national outreach center, adding an initial 23,000 square feet of office space with plans to expand.
In agreement with the aspirations of more than 50 health insurance plans partnered with MedXM, the company plans to double its capacity for in-home and retail clinic health assessments and screenings.
MedXM’s Member Outreach Center expansion to Oklahoma City will also help bolster MedXM’s services into the ever-changing healthcare landscape.
“As part of our expansion plan and to better serve our national footprint, we researched and spoke to a number of different state governments. I’m happy to announce that Oklahoma, specifically Oklahoma City, was chosen as our new home,” said MedXM CEO Sy Zahedi. “We look forward to being part of this community by creating jobs and contributing to the state economy. I would like to thank Governor Mary Fallin and her staff in making this a wonderful experience. We were able to check every box we needed to make this an obvious choice.”
“We are excited to add MedXM to our business community,” said Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin. “Oklahoma City has seen growth in customer service and support operations. MedXM’s decision to expand to this area showcases the positive benefits of operating in Oklahoma City and the state of Oklahoma. This expansion will also open the door for Oklahomans looking for career opportunities in the field of customer service.”
In 2017, two additional companies received SIP funds and pledged job growth for Oklahoma City: McClaren Plastics, a contract manufacturer of thermoplastic and fiberglass reinforced plastic parts and assemblies, and M-D Building Products, a leader in energy efficiency products, floor trims, floor installation tools and digital level technology.
McClaren Plastics will expand in the Oklahoma City market from its headquarters in Pennsylvania. The company will build a plant and hire 60 employees in Oklahoma City to manufacture custom-designed fiberglass products, and the location has the potential for future growth.
