Athenahealth Grows Presence In Atlanta

Stocks in this article: ATHN

"athenahealth is one of the fastest-growing companies in HIT, an exploding industry in which the largest sector is already thriving in Georgia thanks to our robust telecommunications infrastructure and health care system, talented workforce and pro-business environment," said Gov. Nathan Deal.

"The athenahealth win is huge for the city, our residents, and the Ponce de Leon corridor," Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said. "The company's commitment to our city continues Atlanta's successful string of attracting major operations and headquarters of sought-after companies."

"The City of Atlanta's ability to attract a company such as athenahealth is a testament to the strides we are making to position Atlanta as an innovation hub and global city," said Brian P. McGowan, president and CEO of Invest Atlanta. "Jobs such as the ones athenahealth will bring to Atlanta enable the city to provide great opportunities for our highly skilled and competitive work force."

"athenahealth's expansion is a huge win for Georgia and is a great example of why Atlanta is considered to be the nation's health IT capital," said Hans Gant, Senior Vice President of Economic Development, Metro Atlanta Chamber (MAC). "Our health IT ecosystem continues to thrive as more companies locate and expand here. Atlanta is home to more than 250 health IT companies, the top nine of which report more than $4 billion in annual revenue. The State of Georgia, led by the Georgia Department of Economic Development, along with MAC and Invest Atlanta have made a concerted effort to focus on the health IT industry cluster, and we are seeing the results of our efforts."

"athenahealth is a trusted, innovative company that contributes significantly to the robust, progressive business community we are developing at Ponce City Market," said Matt Bronfman, chief executive officer of Jamestown. "The company's presence in the development cements Ponce City Market as a hub for innovation in the Atlanta area."
