New firm creating downtown jobs

Twenty full-time jobs will be added downtown on Monday when a new company, which helps hospitals and physician offices collect payments, moves into the former Corporate Research International building, 129 E. Crawford St.
IntelliHARTx and its subsidiary, ITx Healthcare, plan to grow to 200 to 250 employees in five years, said Chief Executive Officer John Kunysz. Eventually he plans to open offices in other locations.
The workers will be mainly health care account resolution representatives, Kunysz said.
Kunysz called Findlay a “great location.” He plans to hire University of Findlay graduates.
“We’re really pleased. There is great talent here,” Kunysz said. “They work hard. They have a great work ethic.”
Kunysz said IntelliHARTx is his fourth business involved in the “health care revenue cycle.”
The first 50 Findlay employees will be paid about $33,000 per year, the state Development Services Agency reported. The state on Monday awarded IntelliHARTx a $102,845 payroll tax credit on the first 50 jobs. To get the tax credit, IntelliHARTx must stay in Findlay for nine years.
IntelliHARTx is investing $750,000 in hardware and equipment, and $750,000 in worker training, Kunysz said.
Its predecessor at 129 E. Crawford St., Stericycle, a medical waste company, moved out in 2013. Stericycle, of Lake Forest, Ill., bought Corporate Research International, a mystery shopping company, in 2011.
