A health services company is building a new operations center in San Antonio with the help of a $849,000 grant from the state.

QTC Management, a subsidiary of information technology firm Leidos Holdings, promises to create 252 new jobs with the center and invest more than $3 million into the site.

QTC is the nation’s largest provider of medical, disability and occupational health examination services. It already employs 400 employees in the region, according to the San Antonio Economic Development Foundation.

The expansion, located a few streets over from its existing facility in northwest San Antonio, near the Wonderland of the Americas mall, will support the Defense Health Agency by providing services to National Guard personnel and other military reserve personnel before deployment.

QTC President Liz Porter said in a prepared statement that the center would provide medical and disability exams for “veterans, federal employees and the San Antonio business community.”

“We are thrilled to grow our Texas footprint in San Antonio,” Porter said.

The company received $849,000 through the Texas Enterprise Fund, a state program offering cash grants to companies in exchange for promises of investments and job creation.
