“As technology plays an increasingly larger role in our service capabilities, and in the day-to-day lives of people, ASH must deliver innovative and robust capabilities that will allow us to keep up with demand and also grow our services in new ways,” said ASH Chairman and CEO George DeVries. “Our new office site tied to the university campus and our affiliation with USC and Innovista puts us at the center of technology innovation, and will facilitate access to a valuable pool of prospective employees as we develop new web and mobile technology applications.”
ASH recently signed a lease for office space in the “IT-oLogy @ Innovista”-branded building at the Tower at 1301 Gervais Street and plans to open the office in November. The new office will employ up to 15 IT professionals and will offer internships and job opportunities to students and recent graduates of the university’s computing, information technology, and health sciences programs, as well as to experienced local IT professionals.
“USC places a high priority on engagement with business and industry,” said university President Harris Pastides. “ASH has a national reputation for excellence in health services, and we are excited to collaborate in areas of technology innovation, while expanding the educational and employment opportunities for our students and graduates.”
“ASH is thrilled to partner with leading-edge universities like the University of South Carolina,” added DeVries. “We look forward to a long and successful relationship.”
