Happy New Year!
Our office has been contacted by a site selection firm to help site a 30,000 square foot customer service call center – not a telemarketing call center. The project is being referred to as “Project Nightingale. This call center will serve as Project Nightingale’s western customer service facility and will be staffed with highly skilled health services professionals, primarily nurses.
The timeline for this project is an aggressive one; Project Nightingale would like to be visiting shortlist communities by the end of January 2007. As such, a quick response from your community is needed by January 11th! The company would like to be operational by April 2007.
Nightingale’s two principal requirements are: first, a candidate community will have a sufficient presence of nursing and related healthcare professionals to allow Project Nightingale to quickly recruit and hire its complement of staff without adversely impacting the local labor market; and second, a candidate community will either have an existing call center facility that is equipped and available or a real estate option that can be quickly permitted and built-out as a call center, or a building that can be quickly renovated and equipped.
There will be 60 to 90 jobs created over a four year period.
If your community meets Project Nightingale’s site and labor requirements, please send your response to me by 5:00 p.m. January 11th. Your response should adequately address the site requirements (description of the facility) and labor requirements (description of the available healthcare professionals).
Please feel free to call or email me with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you.
