Avizia to expand healthcare IT operation in Fairfax County

Avizia, a leading provider of system-wide telehealth solutions, is investing to expand its presence in Fairfax County. The expansion will create 27 new jobs.

“I want to congratulate Avizia on its impressive growth in Fairfax County and for contributing to Virginia’s renowned technology sector,” said Governor McAuliffe. “The Commonwealth boasts a stellar turnout of sought-after college graduates each year and to retain that talent, we work every day with our private sector partners to help provide meaningful, well-paid jobs in ever-growing fields like healthcare IT. As we diversify and build the new Virginia economy, we recognize Avizia’s contribution to the growth of the critical industries of the 21st century.”

Avizia, founded in 2013, partners with providers to deploy and power system-wide telehealth. To do this, Avizia combines a collaborative approach with a market-leading telehealth solutions suite that scales across the continuum of care. Trusted by eight of the top ten integrated delivery networks in the nation and one in four U.S. hospitals, Avizia empowers providers to deliver unparalleled access and clinical excellence to patients.

“It’s exciting to watch a growing, Virginia-founded company advance technology to expand healthcare solutions and delivery options, positively impacting the industry as a whole,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Todd Haymore. “With a direct economic output of nearly $44 billion, Virginia’s IT sector is booming, particularly in Fairfax County. Thanks to our cutting-edge technology infrastructure and acclaimed higher education institutions, the Commonwealth is a hub for the IT industry, and an ideal home for groundbreaking companies like Avizia. We look forward to the company’s next chapter in Virginia.”

“Virginia is the perfect home for a growth stage company like Avizia,”said Mike Baird, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Avizia. “Our company has access to a fantastic pool of talent and enjoys a supportive business community. And because Avizia operates in a regulated market, it has been crucial to be close to policy discussions.”
