A health technology company that specializes in the post-acute and home-based care sectors plans to add 260 jobs to its local operations in the coming years, which would more than quintuple its payroll.

MyNEXUS, which two years ago raised $13.6 million from a New York investment firm, will invest $1 million in building out its footprint in Maryland Farms. CEO McArthur VanOsdale and his team will lease space in a building adjacent to their home on Westpark Drive and plan to hire their new colleagues in the next three years.

MyNEXUS now employs about 60 people who partner with insurance companies to monitor and manage the care of home-based patients and cut down on hospital or nursing home readmissions. In a statement, company officials said their hiring plans between now and the end of 2019 will focus on IT support, clinical operations and quality control positions.

“Providing individuals with more opportunities for home-based care is a rapidly growing segment of the health care system and is key in building healthier communities,” VanOsdale said “Being a native Nashvillian, I am passionate about being a part of Nashville’s continued economic development, and myNEXUS is excited about being a contributor toward bringing career opportunities to the Greater Middle Tennessee area.”

VanOsdale was in the news earlier this week as well when he and former HCA executive Juan Vallarino paid almost $2.3 million for more than 18 acres in Antioch through the V2 Capital vehicle. The duo is examining its options for developing office, hospitality and retail spaces on the property, which sits next to the Global Mall at The Crossings, the former Hickory Hollow Mall.
