CHURUBUSCO â€” Churubusco could soon be the new location for a health care companyâ€™s home office.
Whitley County Council discussed an incentive package to entice Inwelligent Healthcare Inc. to the area, and at last nightâ€™s Churubusco Town Council meeting, President Frank Kessler asked fellow members if there was an additional incentive the town could make.
â€śWe are at the top of the list. We are in the running and I am pretty sure we are going to be the location this company chooses,â€ť Kessler said. â€śHowever, I think if we were able to offer something, it would tip the scales further in our favor and show the county we are serious about attracting new business.â€ť
According to Kessler, Inwelligent Healthcare Inc. is currently based out of Boston and would hire new employees locally, rather than relocate existing workers.
â€śRight now they are forecasting about 50 employees in the first three years,â€ť Kessler said. â€śThey could grow to need 90 in the future.â€ť
Final negotiations on an existing building in downtown Churubusco are underway, although the council was not at liberty to disclose what specific location the owners were hoping to acquire.
