WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- APS Healthcare, a leading provider of specialty healthcare solutions, unveiled its new corporate headquarters in White Plains today, bringing 200 new jobs to Westchester County and New York State.
APS Healthcare, which operates 41 Medicaid programs in 26 states and Puerto Rico, was recently selected by the New York State Department of Health to manage the state's Medicaid Quality Wise program. The program will provide a retrospective claims review of the healthcare services delivered to three million New York fee-for-service Medicaid recipients.
APS Healthcare will occupy more than 44,000 square feet of 44 South Broadway, taking up an entire floor in the building known as Westchester One. The company signed a 10-year lease and will hire a total of 200 employees by 2012. So far, about 70 have been hired. The company moved from Silver Springs, Maryland late last year to temporary space in White Plains while the Westchester One location was being prepared.
"The move to New York and Westchester could not have occurred without the efforts of Empire State Development and Westchester County Office of Economic Development," said Greg Scott, Chairman and CEO of APS Healthcare.
"New York and Westchester economic development officials saw that we were a growing company that was looking for a highly skilled and impressive work force. They were amazingly helpful and we're thankful for their efforts. We expect to be a part of the community here in White Plains for a very long time," said Jerry Vaccaro, MD, President and COO.
"This is a tremendous win for the Mid-H
