The newest operations center in PharmaCentra's growing domestic network will bring 150 jobs to rural Americus, Georgia. The Atlanta-based marketing and services firm provides customizable healthcare management programs for the pharmaceutical industry. The expansion is the latest in PharmaCentra's rural contact center model, which provides the firm with high quality employees and brings careers to rural communities - including 150 new jobs in Americus. "We have deliberately chosen to locate our operations centers in rural South Georgia communities because of the exceptional quality of the workforce," said Dan Berman, CEO of PharmaCentra. "Americus is home to Georgia Southwestern State University and South Georgia Technical College. As such, PharmaCentra has access to a very skilled, educated and motivated workforce." This is the third operations center PharmaCentra has opened in South Georgia in the last year and a half. PharmaCentra also has locations in Swainsboro and Fitzgerald. The new facility will house WellTouch, PharmaCentra's signature patient compliance and persistency program. WellTouch™ Healthcare Specialists encourage patients to immediately fill their first prescription, remind patients about refills, schedule physician appointments and provide medical resources.
