LABCORP FINALIZES DECISION ON GREENSBORO CALL CENTER
Burlington-based LabCorp announced on Feb. 11 will open a new billing operations office in a leased space inside the Meadowview Crossing building near Four Seasons Town Centre in Greensboro, creating 373 jobs and transferring 52 employees from Burlington.
The company had considered a location in Danville, Va. Based on its decision to locate in Greensboro, the company stands to receive $373,000 in incentive grants from the city of Greensboro, $248,791 from Guilford County and $275,000 from the One North Carolina Fund.
LabCorp provides testing services, diagnostic support, medical lab specimens, cancer detection, drug testing and other services to doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers, according to a press release by the Greensboro Economic Development Alliance.
MINOR LEAGUE TEAM PRESIDENT HON- ORED BY FOUNDATION
Donald Moore, the president and general manager of the Greensboro Grasshoppers minor league baseball team, is the recipient of the Joseph M. Bryan Foundation’s Unsung Hero award. The foundation is led by former Mayor Jim Melvin, a key booster of the baseball stadium, which opened in 2005. The honor is given “in recognition of individuals who have made significant contributions to the community, but whose good works are not widely recognized,” a press release from the Grasshoppers organization states. The award includes a $25,000 cash grant to the Atlantic Coast Conference in Moore’s honor to be used for the ACC Baseball Tournament at NewBridge Bank Park in May. The park has hosted more than 2.1 million fans in its first five seasons, making it the only Class A team in minor league baseball history to draw more than 400,000 fans and increase attendance numbers four straight years in a row, the press release states.
