Healthcare Relationship Cloud, also known as hc1.com, announced last week that it is expanding it headquarters in Northwest Technology Park at the intersection of 96th Street and Zionsville Road, in Zionsville. 

According to a statement from the company, more than $2.5 million will be put towards a building-wide renovation. More than 9,000 square feet will be added to the current location, along with a minimum of 175 jobs by 2019.

The company currently operates inside a space of 16,626 square-feet, with more than 90 employees, the majority of whom reside in Boone County.

The announcement of an expansion comes after the company partnered with Beckman Coulter Diagnostics, of Brea, Calif., in April.

“The partnership between Beckman Coulter and (Health Relationship Cloud) combines two highly complementary innovators to create value that can revolutionize the healthcare industry,” said Brad Bostic, chairman and CEO of hc1.com. “The agreement will allow Beckman Coulter’s customers to transform the healthcare experience by immediately addressing important provider needs, taking action on those needs and ultimately delivering an amazing healthcare experience to patients and providers.”

Bostic, an Indianapolis resident who started his career working with the once-popular online search tool ChaCha, Inc., founded hc1.com in 2011 as part of an effort to streamline the communication efforts between doctors’ offices, patients, and laboratories.

Hc1.com was named in the Red Herring Global 100 recognizing the 100 most promising companies worldwide in 2012.
