“After completing a thorough evaluation of multiple options on where to locate the Global Headquarters and Americas Operations Facility for TouchPoint Medical, we selected Pasco County”, stated Brian McNeill, President and CEO of TouchPoint, Inc., the parent company of TouchPoint Medical. “TouchPoint Medical is a growth platform for our company and we needed a location that would enable us to attract and retain a talented and motivated workforce with ample expansion capability. Pasco County and the greater Tampa area was a perfect fit. We are excited to begin our next phase of expansion and greatly appreciate the genuine hospitality and support that officials from both Pasco County and the State of Florida provided to us in our search process.”
