Leading healthcare technology company moves headquarters to historic building on Lincoln Street to accommodate its rapid expansion

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Mayor Thomas M. Menino welcomed leading healthcare technology company NaviNet to Boston, marking one of the largest business relocations to the city in recent history. NaviNet occupies more than 65,000 square feet in a fully restored, sustainable historic building at 179 Lincoln Street overlooking the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway. The relocation will support NaviNet’s rapid growth, provide resources and amenities to meet the Company’s evolving business and employee needs, and further enhance Boston’s reputation as the country’s epicenter for the healthcare and technology industries.

“I am thrilled that NaviNet has chosen Boston as their permanent home,” said Mayor Thomas M. Menino. “Boston’s world class leadership in the healthcare industry as well as our creative and talented workforce make Boston an ideal location for companies like NaviNet. I am excited to work with them as they continue to expand their employment base in our city.”

“Boston is unquestionably the country’s premier location for healthcare and technology innovation. Mayor Menino's team, led by John Palmieri and the Boston Redevelopment Authority, was instrumental in helping NaviNet establish its headquarters here,” said NaviNet President and CEO Brad Waugh. “Massachusetts, and the city of Boston in particular, boast leading healthcare and educational facilities, a thriving mix of health insurers and some of the world’s best hospitals. They are also home to extraordinary talented technology and healthcare professionals, which allows NaviNet to hire the best and brightest employees in pursuit of our mission to advance the efficiency and quality of healthcare.”
