Anthem revealed Tuesday that it plans to remain headquartered in Indianapolis.

The insurer will invest $20 million to expand and update its Virginia Avenue facility. The renovations will allow Anthem to consolidate operations and move out of its Monument Circle property.

Anthem executives predict renovations to be completed by the end of 2018. There will be room for an average of 2,600 employees with collaboration areas, employee lounges, a fitness facility, and a healthy-food focused cafeteria.

In a statement, Gov. Eric Holcomb said the health insurer’s presence has been a proud city staple for the past 75 years, adding it has been “great partner to the state of Indiana.” He said, Anthem’s new headquarters will be a magnet for talent attraction and retention in Indiana.

Anthem President and CEO Gail K. Boudreaux shared her excitement concerning the new work facility and the positive effects it will have on future employees.

“[It] will create a dynamic work environment that will support our goal of leading our industry through continued growth, innovation, and, most importantly, providing a healthier future for all Americans,” she said.
