HealthTrackRx, a molecular diagnostic testing laboratory, has been presented with the One Southern Indiana “Economic Development Impact Project of the Year” award. One Southern Indiana is the economic development organization and chamber of commerce serving Clark and Floyd counties in Southern Indiana.

To be considered for the “Economic Development Impact Project of the Year” award, an economic project must have been announced between July 2022 and June 2023. The honor is presented to the organizational member who embodies the characteristics of the award category and meets criteria such as new jobs created, community alignment, capital investment, sector opportunity, and the use or re-use of the property, according to the company.

HealthTrackRx selected the Southern Indiana region to serve its growing customer base because of its proximity to UPS and the Louisville Airport to better enable next-morning infection results for patients and their healthcare providers nationwide. The lab was originally designed to be staffed with over 60 employees over a three-or four-year period but has exceeded that by far. It has been so successful that HealthTrackRx is considering expanding its regional lab operations in Clarksville over the next two or three years.

“HealthTrackRx is a perfect match for the Town of Clarksville and Southern Indiana. They have an incredible business model leveraged by our region’s logistical advantage,” says John Launius, VP and director of Economic Development of One Southern Indiana. “In addition to bringing high-wage jobs to the region, HealthTrackRx has renovated and reactivated their new Lewis and Clark Parkway home into a clinical laboratory and professional office space.”
