Growth Spurs WPC to Relocate to Seattle, Open Nashville Office

April 18, 2011

Fueled by aggressive growth and demand for its healthcare technology and business expertise, Washington Publishing Company (WPC), the foremost data integration authority, today announced two major expansions: the relocation of its Bellevue corporate headquarters to Seattle, Wash., and the opening of WPC Services, a full-service healthcare consulting organization in metropolitan Nashville, Tenn. The new address of WPC’s headquarters is 2107 Elliott Ave, Suite 304, Seattle, Wash., 98121. WPC Services is located at 1802 Williamson Court, Brentwood, Tenn., 37027.

Founded in 1975, WPC offers data, technology consulting and tools to help industry leading software companies, healthcare providers, insurers, clearinghouses and other third-party organizations manage business change and technology challenges. WPC’s comprehensive portfolio of technology and business offerings empowers organizations to meet the industry’s most pressing needs — healthcare fraud and data security; standardization mandates such as HIPAA, ASC X12 5010 and ICD-10; barriers to electronic medical records adoption and data exchange including meeting Meaningful Use criteria to qualify for federal incentives; payment reform; Accountable Care Organization qualifications; and more.

“In recent years, we’ve supported this aggressive growth strategy as our core administration and publishing businesses remained steady, while an influx of new clientele and strong demand sharpened our focus on the value of our comprehensive offerings. Relocating the headquarters and opening our new consulting office positions us for further business development and expansion,” said Andrew Fitzpatrick, chief executive officer at WPC. “We decided to launch WPC Services in greater Nashville because of the location’s high concentration of healthcare companies and close proximity to a top-notch talent pool. The area is the hub of innovative healthcare services and technology. Its easy accessibility makes it a very attractive and convenient location for employees, clients and new business outreach in nearby states.”

“As a rapidly growing, leading provider of healthcare technology and business consulting services and solutions that improve organizations’ bottom line, WPC is experiencing dynamic market demand for our offerings,” said Eric Mueller, president of WPC Services. “We anticipate that our new Nashville office will further broaden our presence in the Southeast region and demonstrate commitment to the company’s mission of re-engineering healthcare business and delivery performance.”
