Company hires for healthcare jobs in Tampa

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

Humana keeps on announcing hiring decisions and just said they will be looking to fill more healthcare jobs in Tampa.

That is great news for the state, which was hit hard by the economy. Florida jobs will increase after the company fulfills its promise and begins hiring.

The company’s national care center will add 300 employees this fall to handle the expansion of the company’s national chronic care management programs.

Humana Cares, which opened its doors in February 2009 with about 200 associates, will employ about 1,300 employees by year end. About 250 of the new positions will be located at the 75,000-square-foot national care center in St. Petersburg.

Humana, which just last month announced it was adding 200 positions to its fulltime workforce at its national Medicare service operations center in Tampa, is one of Florida’s largest health care employers, with more than 5,000 employees statewide.

Humana Cares President Jean Bisio attributed the expansion to an increase in member participation in the company’s Complex Care Management Program and the addition of new members in its Special Needs Plans, particularly “dual-eligible” members who receive both Medicare and Medicaid. These members often have higher-than-average medical needs.

“We are excited to bring our holistic approach to managing care to more Special Needs and dual-eligible members who live with chronic illness,” said Bisio. “We’re confident they too will enjoy the same positive results as Humana members currently served by Humana Cares, such as 48 percent fewer hospital readmissions and medical claims costs that are 32 percent lower than other Humana members have experienced.”

Nelson, Florida’s senior senator, was on hand today at Humana Cares for the jobs announcement, and following a tour of the national care center in St. Petersburg, he also saw a live demonstration of Humana Cares’ national telehealth pilot.

Through the interactive Intel Health Guide, Humana Cares nurses use two-way video to remotely monitor the weight, blood pressure and other key vital signs of some 2,000 Humana members across the country who are living with congestive heart failure.

Hiring will begin immediately at Humana Cares for registered nurses, social workers and community health educators to serve the additional members suffering from chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes, congestive heart failure and coronary artery disease. After an initial training period, some positions include a work-at-home option.
