CareTech Solutions purchases Penn-based IGCN

Another business from Troy is getting bigger now that CareTech Solutions has bought IGCN.

CareTech Solutions provides IT and web services to hospitals and other healthcare institutions. Pennsylvania-based IGCN, short for Interactive Global Communications Network, specializes in building and managing websites for hospitals.

CareTech Solutions made the purchase to expand its client base and technical capabilities. IGCN is 12 years old and employs about a dozen people, some of whom will move to CareTech’s offices in Troy.

“We expect some of them to [move] but the details are still being worked out,” says Anne Santori, a spokeswoman for CareTech Solutions.

The company employs just under 1,000 people across the U.S., including about 650 in Troy. It made 200 hires within the last year and expects to continue this in 2010.

“There has been a lot of hiring going on in the last year,” Santori says.
