LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Confluent Health LLC celebrates its company headquarters as leaders and local officials held the grand opening for the $10 million project that will create 350 full-time Kentucky jobs.
The project is expected to double the previous office space from 18,000 square feet to more than 36,000 square feet. Confluent Health will expand its headquarters in response to significantly increased demand resulting from numerous acquisitions and organic growth. Jobs created with the expansion will include marketing, IT, human resources, and administrative and executive roles. The project was announced in January of this year with work on the new facility beginning shortly after. Confluent currently employs 125 people in Louisville.
“Confluent Health is a Kentucky-born and bred health care company invested in innovating an accessible and equitable future of musculoskeletal care,” said Confluent Health President and CEO Dr. Larry Benz. “We are proud to expand our national footprint while deepening our roots in the bluegrass state.”
Confluent Health operates five divisions, including 45 physical and occupational therapy company partners spanning over 530 outpatient physical therapy locations across 29 states. Confluent Health maintains a higher education company focused on post-professional training where it houses a residency and fellowship program and offers university partnerships in entry-level physical and occupational therapy, as well as PA programs. It also operates an occupational health company with over 1,500 workplace safety and injury prevention sites in 48 states, a national independent provider association, and Confluent Ventures, an innovation center with digital health, virtual reality physical therapy and omnichannel health care pathway services.
To encourage investment and job growth in the community, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority (KEDFA) in January preliminarily approved incentive agreements with the company under the Kentucky Business Investment program. The performance-based agreement can provide tax incentives based on the company’s investment and annual job creation and wage targets.
In addition, Confluent Health can receive resources from Kentucky’s workforce service providers. These include no-cost recruitment and job placement services, reduced-cost customized training and job-training incentives.
