Today, Greater St. Louis, Inc. CEO Jason Hall joined Missouri Governor Mike Parson, representatives from the Mayo Clinic and Siemens, as well as other business leaders, to congratulate EmpowerMe Wellness, a St. Louis-based provider of senior health services, on the opening of a new state-of-the-art lab facility in the St. Louis metro.

EmpowerMe Wellness’ advanced technology and unique integrated approach to health helped it raise more than $100 million in financing, prompting the company to provide new services, expand its footprint, and add at least 500 employees in the St. Louis metro over the next three years.

Greater St. Louis, Inc. founding investors, Hermann Companies, represented by Robert R. Hermann, Jr. and Rick Holton, Jr., and Jim McKelvey, made significant investments in EmpowerMe Wellness, helping bolster our metro’s expanding technology sector.

“This new lab represents a significant capital expenditure and a major investment in the future of the St. Louis market and demonstrates the importance of investing in advanced technologies,” said Hall. “It also exemplifies the type of advancement and job growth called for in the STL 2030 Jobs Plan and highlights the extraordinary economic momentum unfolding in the metro.”
