Grand Opening New Sequence Health Facility On County Road 222

The official grand opening and ribbon cutting for Cullman’s newest, large-scale business endeavor took place at 1:30 pm Wednesday.

The enterprise in question is Sequence Health.

This firm is now the occupant of a brand new, 15,000 square foot facility across from Topre in Industrial Park III at 1535 County Road 222.

Their building houses a cutting-edge medical call center and administrative offices for what Sequence CEO John Richmond calls ‘a major milestone for our company’.

Sequence Health’s long-term vision is to create the best boutique medical call center in the country.

In October of 2016, Richmond came to Wallace State Community College to announce his firm had agreed to relocate its Atlanta-based call center in Cullman.

The plan was to erect a new facility – built-from-the-ground-up – spanning approximately 15,000 square feet. At the time, Richmond said he expected Sequence to employ over 128 employees within the next five years: http://cullmantoday.com/2016/10/05/sequence-health-bringing-125-jobs-15k-square-feet-to-cullman/

The promise was fulfilled Wednesday.

CEO Richmond explains the process in great detail here:

Wallace State Community College President Dr. Vicki Karlowics was instrumental in providing temporary office space and staffing inside the Bailey Building on campus as the new construction progressed and the occupancy completed.

Dr. Karolewics provides a fascinating and humorous perspective on what occurred from the time of Sequence Health’s original announcement to today’s grand opening:

After the October 2016 announcement, Sequence Health began moving it’s call center out of Atlanta to Wallace State.

As Dale Greer the Director of the Cullman Economic Development Agency said during the grand opening, it required many entities, organizations and people coming together statewide to transition the Sequence Health incubation period into grounded, tangible reality.

No person on the state level was more vital in ensuring the success of this project than Kenneth Boswell, Director of the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs (ADECA):
