Craig Mandeville founded Forcura in 2012 in Jacksonville.

Jacksonville-based Forcura announced May 27 it will add 115 jobs by the end of 2022 and open a new headquarters in the city with help from an economic development agreement Project Graph, which City Council unanimously approved in March.

WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reports that Forcura is a health care technology company that enables safer patient care transitions along the care continuum. It will receive taxpayer-backed incentives from the city and state. 

“Congratulations to Forcura on their selection of Jacksonville for their new corporate headquarters,” Gov. Ron DeSantis said in a JAX Chamber news release.

“Florida continues to be a leader in economic opportunity and innovation because of our business-friendly environment and talent pipeline. Companies like Forcura recognize this because they are confident they have opportunities for growth,” he said.

According to a city Office of Economic Development project summary, the company requested $690,000 in incentives. It will receive a $6,000 refund per job. The state will pay 80% of the total incentive and the city will pay 20%. 

The 115 jobs will have an average annual wage of $71,663. It currently employs 73 in Jacksonville.
