McKesson Medical-Surgical expands in Henrico, creates 200+ jobs
HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — McKesson Medical-Surgical, Inc. will expand its Henrico County divisional headquarters and create 225 jobs, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe announced Thursday. The healthcare services and information technology company will spend more than $10 million and relocate to the Deep Run III building, near Innsbrook, in western Henrico.
“This new, state-of-the-art headquarters will create a collaborative workspace that helps us attract and retain the top talent we need to grow our business and better serve our customers as we work to improve healthcare in the U.S.,” Stanton McComb, president, McKesson Medical-Surgical, said in a statement. “McKesson Medical-Surgical is proud to be a Top-50 employer in Richmond and I look forward to McKesson’s continued investment in Virginia.”
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the Henrico County Economic Development Authority and the Greater Richmond Partnership to secure this project.
“McKesson Corporation’s expansion is great news for the people of Henrico County and our Commonwealth as a whole as we work to grow and diversify Virginia’s economy,” Governor McAuliffe said in a statement. “Henrico County has been home to the company’s Medical-Surgical business unit for many years, and McKesson Medical-Surgical is an important employer, paying highly competitive salaries to nearly 600 staff in the region. Virginia’s high quality workforce and world class business environment played a key role in helping McKesson expand, and we are going to continue to leverage those outstanding assets to bring more companies like them here to the Commonwealth.”
McKesson Medical-Surgical Inc.’s parent company, the McKesson Corporation, is ranked #15 on the FORTUNE 500.
“McKesson’s Medical-Surgical Division has been one of Henrico County’s major employers for as long as I can remember,” Henrico Board of Supervisors Chairman Patricia S. O’Bannon said in a statement. “We are pleased with their decision to lease 168,500 square feet of office space in the Deep Run III Building as their new corporate headquarters, and are particularly excited about their plans to add 225 new jobs there over the next few years.”
McKesson Medical-Surgical plans to move into its new building in June. Hiring for new positions should begin at that time, Vice President of Communications Tom Bickford said.
