Shearwater Health expands outsourcing operations in the Philippines

Clinical process outsourcing (CPO) firm Shearwater Health is expanding its local operations in the Philippines with plans to add as much as 900 more seats in the Visayas. Shearwater Health, which is one of the largest CPOs in the Philippines, is looking at Iloilo or Bacolod for its Central Visayas expansion and possibly Davao for its Mindanao expansion. The expansion comes as the company expects more business from US clients in the healthcare sector in the next three years. The site for the expansion will be decided within three months, with the actual expansion taking place by Q1 of 2017. Shearwater Health was formerly known as HCCA International and HCCA Health Connections.
