Health care company Advanced Correctional Healthcare Inc. will relocate its offices to Franklin, according to an April 21 announcement from the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development.
ACH will move from Peoria, Illinois, to 720 Cool Springs Blvd., Franklin, bringing 58 new jobs and investing approximately $2.5 million in the area.
The company is the largest county jail health care provider in the U.S. and operates in a variety of correctional facilities such as county jails, juvenile detention centers, mental health units, work release centers and drug rehabilitation centers, according to the TDECD.
The company cited the area's lower cost of living in relation to Illinois as incentive to move to the area.
“Advanced Correctional Healthcare is growing—and so are Illinois’ taxes, some of the highest in the nation," ACH President and CEO Jessica Young said in the announcement. "Our team looks forward to lower taxes, lower cost of living and top-rated schools. We are deeply grateful for the state of Tennessee and Williamson County’s support. We will work hard to give Tennessee a positive return on its investment in us.”
An exact relocation date has not been announced.
