Medac to expand in Augusta, add 60-70 employees

An Augusta-based medical billing company is expanding its facilities and adding 60 to 70 full-time employees.

Medac is opening its third Augusta campus at 1291 Interstate Parkway at the end of November. The new offices in a leased building behind Doctors Hospital are temporary as the company works toward a long-term goal of consolidating its facilities under one roof, said Alicia Jennings, the director of busi­ness development.

Medac does billing for anesthesiology companies and was founded in Augusta in 1992 by brothers Kam and Bijon Memar.

After hiring 60 to 70 employees in 2013, the company will employ more than 500 people nationwide, of which 80 percent will be in Augusta. Its services are offered in 31 states.

The newest facility, covering 12,000 square feet, helps ac­commodate the growing business, Jen­nings said. The company needs space as it adds several clients in the next six months.

Several years ago, Med­ac planned to build a 50,000-square-foot building on Jimmie Dyess Parkway. Jen­nings said the land was never acquired, and Medac is working on a new plan to expand its headquarters at 804 Scott Nixon Memorial Drive.

“Several times we have tried to get into a larger building. Ultimately, we want a building that will fit everyone,” she said.

The offices at 3687 Wheeler Road primarily house Medac’s technology department.

Manufacturing or service? Service. Over used, underpaid outsourcing. But countyman / Deke will be happy.
