Louisiana officials have announced that a health care company plans to expand its operations in the New Orleans area, adding several dozen new jobs.
Gov. Bobby Jindal's office said Wednesday that ChenMed's creation of a new software development center in the city's Central Business District will create 50 new jobs with an average annual salary of $83,000.
ChenTech, a ChenMed subsidiary, develops software products for doctors, hospitals and clinics that are primarily used to treat Medicare-eligible patients.
ChenMed already operates four medical clinics in the New Orleans area under the JenCare brand.
