Monday, August 7, 2017

Fairfax County, Virginia – Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced today that Avizia, a provider of telehealth products and services, is investing to expand its presence in Fairfax County. The expansion will create 27 new jobs.

Founded in 2013, Avizia partners with providers to deploy and power system-wide telehealth. To do this, the company combines a collaborative approach with a market-leading telehealth solutions suite for the continuum of care. Avizia services are used by eight of the top 10 integrated delivery networks in the nation and one in four U.S. hospitals.

“Avizia chose to operate in Fairfax County, and Reston specifically, because the tech community is extremely supportive,” CEO Mike Baird said. “CEOs in the community have a culture of collaboration and work together to support and grow the tech industry. We have the right location to attract from the city and the suburbs and our staff has great access to quality housing, office space and top schools.”

Baird said Avizia is not finished growing. “Avizia’s Reston-based headquarters doubled its office space in the past year, and we have plans to continue that trend over the next five years,” he said.

“It is gratifying to see Avizia growing in Fairfax County because of the cutting-edge telehealth technology it is deploying and the important work it is doing to improve medical care,” said Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority. “The success of Avizia here also is gratifying because it is an example of the growing health-related sector in a Fairfax County economy that is becoming more diversified every year.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership will support Avizia’s new job creation through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP). State-funded VJIP provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs or experiencing technological change to support employee training activities.

“It’s exciting to watch a young, Virginia-founded company advance technology to expand healthcare solutions and delivery options, positively impacting the industry as a whole,” McAuliffe said. “With our cutting-edge technology infrastructure and acclaimed higher education system, the Commonwealth is a hub for the IT sector, and an ideal home for innovative companies like Avizia.”

Time magazine called Fairfax County “one of the great economic success stories of our time.” Business growth and innovation helps Fairfax County fund the nation’s top-rated school system and other public services that contribute to the quality of life of residents. Fairfax County offers state-of-the-art infrastructure, access to global markets through Washington Dulles International Airport, a vibrant investment capital community and a highly skilled, well-educated workforce.
