CVS Health will create and retain 912 total jobs as part of a planned expansion at the company’s Hanover Township facility in Luzerne County.
“It’s a big win for Pennsylvania when a nationally-renowned company like CVS Health expands operations in the commonwealth,” said Gov. Wolf. “This project is going to create and retain good, family-sustaining jobs for folks in Luzerne and Somerset counties.”
CVS Health will invest $4.9 million to renovate and repurpose 13,000-square-feet of space at its distribution center located at 1 Great Valley Boulevard in Hanover Township to create a new prescription drug sorting, handling, and packaging operation.
“Our new pharmacy distribution facility will expand our operations capabilities and provide meaningful work to hundreds of Pennsylvanians,” said David Dederichs, Executive Director, Government Affairs, CVS Health.
The company received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) for a $192,000 Pennsylvania First grant and a $100,000 workforce development grant to train its new workers. As part of its expansion project, CVS Health committed to creating 64 new jobs at the Hanover Township facility within three years and retaining 848 existing employees between that facility and their location at 322 Revco Road in Somerset Township.
“We’re thrilled that DCED and the Governor’s Action Team could play a role in this expansion project,” said DCED Acting Secretary Neil Weaver. “We look forward to CVS Health growing their footprint in Luzerne and Somerset counties and providing the region with more good jobs.”
