“I am pleased that Optum and UnitedHealth Group recognize Jacksonville’s high-quality workforce and Florida’s excellent business climate,” said Rep. Crenshaw. “The hundreds of jobs Optum has created here show that Florida is a premier destination for the growth of innovative businesses such as Optum. I look forward to a long and successful partnership between Optum and Florida.”
