While most of the company’s nearly 2,000 employees work in its more than 400 pharmacies across the country, the move will bring about 125 staff from the nation’s leading behavioral health pharmacy, telepsychiatry and medication management company to the new headquarters location.
The company’s record-breaking growth in the past several years drove the relocation, according to Genoa Healthcare chief executive officer, John Figueroa.
“As a national company with a footprint in 45 states, the change of our headquarters from Tukwila to Renton builds on our history in the state of Washington,” he said. “This enables us to continue to support our employees across the country who work directly with 650,000 consumers who have behavioral health or other complex, chronic health care needs.”
In fact, the company’s consumers are a focus in the new space, which includes 30,000 square feet on floors four and seven of the seven-story Class A office tower.
“We’ve modernized our work environment in a way that enables better collaboration, while keeping the focus on our mission,” said Michael Walters, executive vice president, human resources, Genoa Healthcare.
“With a rapidly-growing pharmacy footprint, including 17 pharmacies right here in Washington, we are proud of our those roots,” Walters added. “Plus with a new sign on the building visible to 500,000 commuters annually, we hope to increase awareness that the nation’s fifth largest pharmacy chain is headquartered right here in Washington.”
