The Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) and the Economic Development Corporation of Utah (EDCUtah) have announced Castlight Health, Inc. will open a new location in Utah adding up to 235 jobs and $4.6 million in new state revenue and an estimated $3.1 million in capital investment over the next five years.

“Castlight Health will be a great addition to Utah’s growing healthcare and technology industry sectors,” said Val Hale, executive director at the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development. “Healthcare is important to Utahns, and we’re glad Castlight chose Utah.”

Through its unique combination of hundreds of health data integrations and machine learning that leverages this dataset to personalize the user experience, Castlight simplifies healthcare for 20 million users and more than 260 companies.

“We are excited to open Castlight’s Center of Excellence in Utah,” said Siobhan Nolan Mangini, president and CFO of Castlight Health. “The Salt Lake City area provides access to a talented workforce that will enable us to deliver innovative healthcare technology solutions to our customers. We want to thank the Governor’s Office of Economic Development for helping us find the right home for Castlight’s newest location.”

“We are confident Castlight will find our state and industry welcoming and entrepreneurial, and in-line with its drive for growth and innovation,” said Theresa Foxley, president and CEO of the Economic Development Corporation of Utah. “Castlight Health joins an increasing number of healthtech companies establishing operations in Utah. The depth, breadth, and talent of our tech workforce and the ease of access from the West Coast are appealing.”
