MIDVALE — Utah-based CHG Healthcare Services — the nation's largest privately-owned healthcare staffing company — announced plans Thursday to construct a new corporate headquarters in Midvale.
The company also plans to create more than 500 new jobs in Utah over the next decade.
The project is scheduled for completion in spring 2017.
Founded in Utah in 1979, the company employs nearly 1,000 people in Salt Lake City, with more than 1,800 nationwide. CHG provides services to hospitals, medical groups and healthcare facilities in all 50 states.
The firm's main offices are currently located in the Millrock business development near 6400 South and Wasatch Boulevard.
Meanwhile, the new 283,000 square-foot headquarters will be located at the View 72 development, just off the I-15 freeway at 7200 South. The project will comprise two five-story buildings, connected by a glass "people hub" that will include lounge areas, gathering and meeting spaces, as well as dining areas. Other planned amenities include a full-service cafeteria, a free on-site health clinic, a learning and training center, fitness facilities, fun rooms and outdoor sports courts.
"We're excited to build a new home for our growing company and to provide the type of amenities that our people deserve," said CHG CEO Scott Beck.
