JACKSON — A Missouri company is opening a location in Mississippi to provide non-emergency medical transportation.
MTM Inc. plans a transportation operation and call center in a north Jackson office building that will hire 80 people. The company is investing $400,000.
The Mississippi Development Authority contributed $50,000 for building upgrades, as well as workforce training. State officials say the company will not be eligible for Mississippi’s additional health care incentives.
The company, based in Lake St. Louis, Missouri, provides a way to move non-emergency patients around without using expensive ambulances. Among its customers is the state of Mississippi, for whom it provides rides for Medicaid and kidney disease patients.
