Americus - New jobs are on the way to South Georgia. PharmaCentra is opening a 12,000 square foot facility in Americus. That will create between 85 and 150 new telemarketing jobs.

 The company manages healthcare programs and will remind patients to refill their prescriptions and schedule doctors exams. The business, located on Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard, should be in operation by mid-August.

Payroll Development Authority Director David Garriga said, "Certainly it's going to add to the tax base. Not only from their income derived from the folks that are working here, but property taxes, sales taxes. It's the kind of impact that we need. It's going to have a very beneficial impact on the economy and the region itself."
