ARDX to invest $2.4M to relocate, expand in Norfolk
Health care management, IT consulting firm to create 15 jobs
Health care management and IT consulting firm ARDX will invest $2.4 million to relocate and expand within Norfolk, a project expected to create at least 15 jobs, Gov. Glenn Youngkin announced Thursday.
ARDX will move from Lake Wright Drive to 500 W. 21st St. to hire more staff and establish a division of health equity to focus on improving access, quality and service outcomes for vulnerable populations.
“ARDX is a visionary company that provides critical health care consulting services to at-risk populations while creating good job opportunities in the Virginia communities they serve,” Youngkin said in a statement. “We are proud that ARDX continues to reinvest in the commonwealth, and look forward to supporting the company’s growing operation in Norfolk.”
ARDX President and CEO Angela Reddix founded the company in 2006. Reddix participated in Virginia Business’ Diversity Leadership Series in 2021, the same year she was one of the inaugural Virginia Business Women in Leadership Award winners.
ARDX is an employee-owned and U.S. Small Business Administration Small Disadvantaged Business that provides customizable solutions for population health, payment reform, patient-centered care and health outcomes.
“As a native of Virginia, I am honored to leverage ARDX’s 16 years of experience to support initiatives that bridge the gap between social determinants of health and race equity,” Reddix said in a statement.
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Norfolk and the Hampton Roads Alliance to secure the project. VEDP will provide funding and services to support employee recruitment and training through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP).
