McKesson Medical-Surgical to relocate headquarters, add 225 jobs
McKesson Medical-Surgical Inc., an Henrico County-based affiliate of health-care giant McKesson Corp.,
plans to relocate and expand its headquarters in the county, investing $10 million in capital expense and creating 225 new jobs.
The company will move its headquarters from 8741 Landmark Road near the intersection of Staples Mill and East Parham roads to 168,500 square feet in the six-story Deep Run III building on Mayland Drive in western Henrico. The building, which has 348,174 square feet of office space, once was part of the headquarters of now-defunct consumer electronics retailer Circuit City Stores Inc.
“This new, state-of-the-art headquarters will create a collaborative workspace that helps us attract and retain the top talent we need to grow our business and better serve our customers as we work to improve healthcare in the U.S.,” Stanton McComb, the president of McKesson Medical-Surgical, said in a statement.
Glen Allen-based real estate asset management firm Markel|Eagle Partners acquired the Deep Run building in 2011 and recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe approved a $500,000 grant from the Governor’s Opportunity Fund to assist Henrico County with the project. Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
McKesson, which has operated in Henrico since 1998, currently has nearly 600 employees in the Richmond area, according to the governor’s office. The medical-surgical division’s services include pharmaceutical and medical-surgical supply management, health-care information technology, and business and clinical services.
The parent company, McKesson Corp., based in San Francisco, currently ranks 15 on the Fortune 500 list of the nation’s largest publicly traded companies.
Other tenants in Deep Run III include Travelers Insurance, Essex Bank, Digital Benefit Advisors, Acision LLC and and Appendix R Solution.
