BrightSpring Health Services now has a new headquarters to accompany its recent name change.

BrightSpring moved into the top two floors of the 140,000-square-foot building at 805 N. Whittington Parkway in the ShelbyHurst Office and Research Park last month, and the company invited us in for a tour this week as employees settee into the new workspace. The new office, estimated at $34 million, is designed to create a more communal and collaborative atmosphere, said BrightSpring Chief of Staff Lisa Nalley.

BrightSpring is one of the nation’s largest providers of home- and community-based care for complex patients, such as the developmentally disabled and seniors, and is the anchor tenant for the new building, which was developed by NTS Development Co.

The company has nearly 400 employees at the new HQ but retains its data center and some information technology staff at its old offices at 9901 Linn Station Road. The company had about 100,000 square feet at its old location, but Nalley said it was a more office-heavy layout that was less conducive to the type of work environment BrightSpring wants to foster. For instance, she said the company has cut down on excess office equipment and unnecessary space that might not have been used as efficiently in its previous location. The new office has larger work stations in an open floor plan, and employees have adjustable desks for standing and sitting. There also is a series of meeting rooms, two large classroom-style training rooms and conference room space where the company promotes the collaborative atmosphere. The two-story office also has smaller meeting spaces known as “havens” that employees can use if they have a conference call and “want to escape the white noise,” said Barnard Baker, head of public relations and external communications for BrightSpring.  Click here to read more from Business First.
