Generating Jobs -- the Warehouse Way
Generating these jobs is our long-term teammate XL Health. XL has been a Warehouse tenant since they were hatched in 1997. They've literally grown up with us. And "grow" is the operative word here.
Their recent merger with insurance giant UnitedHealth Group will expand XLHealth’s chronic care management operations. This allows them to bring new services to Maryland residents with Medicare coverage.
(Did you know someone turns 65 every 8 seconds? Scary thought for one who's been hearing the clock tick for awhile.)
XL is also committed to helping clients with chronic conditions and ongoing health needs. The remaining 85 new employees will work with the company’s pharmacist counseling program, which helps members of UnitedHealth Group’s Medicare Advantage program follow instructions for taking their medications.
UnitedHealth Group CEO Stephen Hemsley unveiled their initiative with Port Discovery to prevent childhood obesity through exercise and wise nutitional choices. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and developing good health habits early in life is much better than seeking treatment after years of neglect. Port Discovery is a place to make this learning experience fun.
So it was a good day for one of our favorite tenants, and for Maryland as well. Congrats to XL and their new family, UnitedHealth Group. You are making Maryland a much healthier place to live.
