ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) announced its Humana Cares division, headquartered in St. Petersburg, is now hiring 177 additional associates to handle the expansion of the company’s national chronic care management programs.

Humana Cares, which opened its doors in February 2009 with about 200 associates, will employ nearly 1,000 associates by this summer. About 130 of the new positions will be located at the national care center in St. Petersburg and, after an initial training period, some positions include a work-at-home option.

The company is looking for registered nurses, social workers, community health educators, a registered dietician and administrative support to serve Humana commercial health plan and Medicare Advantage members across the country suffering from chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes, congestive heart failure and coronary artery disease.

To accommodate its expanded workforce, Humana Cares also is looking to add 20,000 square feet of office space in the Tampa Bay area, at a location yet to be determined. Humana Cares currently occupies 40,000 square feet at its national care center in St. Petersburg.

“This expansion allows us to move additional Humana members into our successful care management program where we positively impact the overall health and quality of life of our members every day,” said Jean Bisio, Humana Cares president. “We’re also pleased to continue our positive economic impact on the Tampa Bay area.”

Humana Cares’ holistic approach to managing care for its 123,000 chronically ill Humana members is both saving money and helping improve overall health and quality of life.
