BIRMINGHAM, Alabama –- Startup Pack Health plans to open a new headquarters in downtown Birmingham and anticipates hiring 175 new employees over the next four years, including programmers, developers, health advisers and other positions, according to the Birmingham Business Alliance (BBA).
Pack Health has 30 employees and is renovating a building on First Avenue North that should open this summer. Capital investment in the project is $2.9 million, the BBA says.
“In addition to accommodating our growing staff and bringing us closer to UAB and quality of life factors such as Railroad Park, Regions Field and Innovation Depot, this is a space where we can host events, work more closely with our local partners and become a hub for innovation in health and healthcare in Birmingham,” Pack Health President Mazi Rasulnia said.
