Providence Service Corporation Relocates Corporate Headquarters to Downtown Tucson
Date:2/9/2010

TUCSON, Ariz., Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The Providence Service Corporation, one of Tucson's largest companies with over 11,000 employees nationwide, today announced that it plans to relocate its corporate headquarters to downtown Tucson.

Providence, working with Peach Properties, will take over the vacant building at the corner of Scott and Broadway, adjacent to the new site of Tucson Electric Power's new headquarters.

"This will put two of Tucson's public companies side by side and should further support the downtown area as a developing business environment," said Fletcher McCusker, Chairman and CEO.  "The recent improvements downtown, such as the Scott streetscape, Rialto block facade improvements, new restaurants, retail and fitness space along with the promise of a more friendly business environment, helped convince the Company to relocate."

"My grandfather laid sidewalks downtown for the Works Progress Administration (WPA)," McCusker added.  "It is nice to be in a position to help the private sector revitalize our historic downtown."

"Providence could have gone anywhere in the city," Mayor Bob Walkup stated.  "We are thrilled to see them come downtown.  Hopefully this is another spark to get local and national businesses to see the value and long term prospects of a downtown Tucson location."

The mayor's office along with the Downtown Partnership, Madden Media and Tucson Electric Power were actively involved in recruiting Providence downtown.

Providence will initially move its executive and corporate staff of about 50 people as soon as the remodeling is finished, likely by the summer of 2010.
