Medical Consultation Firm Opens New HQ

Indiana Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch joined Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett and executives of Expert RN (Expert RN|MD), a medical consulting startup, to celebrate the grand opening of its new, downtown headquarters. Launched in 2018, the company also announced plans to grow its workforce in Indiana.

“State leaders are working hard every day to make Indiana a thriving destination to start and scale a business,” said Lt. Governor Crouch. “Big or small, we are extremely grateful for companies like Expert RN|MD who choose Indiana to grow their business and create quality career opportunities for Hoosiers. I am confident our central location, strength in the life sciences industry, and 21st century talent pool will set them up for long-term success.”

Expert RN|MD provides a comprehensive suite of medical consultation services to two distinct industry sectors – law firms and life sciences companies. By curating a national team of highly specialized and diverse clinical experts, Expert RN|MD strives to make an impact on the industries they serve while achieving their employee-based mission to inspire medical professionals to create a career that fits their lifestyle.

Expert RN|MD, which has future plans for national growth, debuted its recently-renovated 4,000-square-foot headquarters facility on the third floor of 235 S. Meridian St. in downtown Indianapolis. To support its initial growth, the company plans to create up to 21 new, high-wage jobs by the end of 2023 in central Indiana and has already added four to its team. The company is hiring for positions in RN consulting, MD consulting and business operations. New positions are expected to offer average salaries above the state and county average wage.

“To have our headquarters in a central Midwest location known for its values of support and client centricity sets us up for future national growth,” said Amanda Stephenson, founder and president of Expert RN|MD. “Not to mention that Indiana has more than 1,750 companies working in the life sciences industry, an incredible number rivaling many of the coastal hubs. While our firm is serving the needs of two very different business sectors, we are fulfilling those needs with one common resource – clinical experts. Additionally, I am proud of the women in leadership trend I see growing in Indiana right now, with 162,000 woman-owned businesses in the state. I am thrilled to be part of that growing statistic.”

According to BioCrossroads and the Indiana Business Research Center, Indiana is the second largest exporter of life sciences products in the U.S. at $10.2 billion in total exports. Together, more than 1,750 companies support over 56,000 Hoosier jobs with average wages of approximately $97,600 annually.

“With its new headquarters located in the downtown Wholesale District, I am proud to welcome Expert RN|MD to the heart of our city,” said Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett. “Not only does this woman-owned business bring jobs and opportunity for growth to the burgeoning life sciences industry here in Indianapolis, but Expert RN|MD also breathes renewed life into one of our city’s most historic areas through the renovation of its home on South Meridian.”

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Expert RN up to $350,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Indianapolis supports the project.
