The National Information Technology Center is located in the Lansing Point building, part of the Meridian Business Park in Englewood, Colo.

Catholic Health Initiatives will open its National Information Technology Center in Denver in February after consolidating and relocating information technology (IT) services to realign its business operations and improve efficiency in the organization.

Until now, Catholic Health Initiatives’ IT services have been provided by service centers located in Tacoma, Wash., and Exton, Pa. About 40 employees from these two service centers have relocated to Denver to fill some of the 156 available jobs, and approximately 50 more jobs will be created in the Denver center during the next two years. Catholic Health Initiatives’ IT professionals will be responsible for providing services in the areas of applications, network, operations and customer support, as well as Web and data warehousing services.

“This new center creates the infrastructure that positions us for growth,” said Chris Macmanus, senior vice president and chief information officer for Catholic Health Initiatives. “It will create operational efficiencies that will enable our market-based organizations to spend more time focusing on patient care, healthy communities and local strategies.”
