In response to an increased demand for in-home and in-facility care, a Greenville health care provider is expanding its presence in the county through a $2.9 million investment into its corporate headquarters, creating 167 new jobs over the next ten years.

Providence Home Care of SC is based in Greenville and provides skilled nursing and personal care along with transportation services to Medicare and Medicaid recipients in the state of South Carolina.

Providence Home Care’s decision to expand its operations and headquarters in Greenville County validates the region’s focus on providing a robust and vibrant business climate, world-class health care services, and a superb quality of life that attracts and appeals to both individuals and companies, said Richard Wilkerson, chairman of the Greenville Area Development Corporation board of directors.

“We salute their job creation and economic investment in this community,” he said.

The company is also expanding its mission statewide to include skilled nursing to clients in the private sector and will soon be certified to provide additional behavioral health care services to Medicare and Medicaid clients.

The health care provider intends to add medication management and medical supply sales to its offerings.

Gov. Nikki Haley said it is exciting to see another expansion in the Upstate.

The expansion demonstrates that South Carolina continues to be a place where businesses can not only grow but also find success year after year, she said.
