Prior Expansion Successes
“Centene Corporation has made significant contributions to the St. Louis region by investing in growth in Ferguson and North St. Louis County. This dedication continues with their proposed expansion in Clayton. Not only will this project deliver over 1,000 new, high-quality jobs to the community, it will also demonstrate the commitment Centene has toward economic excellence. We strongly support this leading development initiative.” – Michael McMillan, President, Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis
Since Centene broke ground in Clayton for its global headquarters in 2008, it has already delivered more than 1,300 high-quality jobs. This expansion will create even more jobs in Clayton and secure Centene’s commitment to Clayton for the future.
In April, Centene celebrated the grand opening of its Ferguson Service Center. The Company’s $25 million investment into this facility brings more than 250 jobs to the Ferguson area.
“The business sector must be a role model in creating stronger and healthier communities across the nation. One company at a time, one community at a time,” said Mr. Neidorff. “As we open our new facility, we celebrate another step toward the revitalization of Ferguson. Centene is proud to be a part of this exciting opportunity and is committed to being a catalyst for that success.”
The 45,000-square-foot facility, located at 2900 Pershall Road, includes a state-of-the-art bistro, fitness center, and on-site early childhood development center, as well as a community center available to the Ferguson community.
The Tyler facility is more than 50,000 sq. ft. and includes a childcare center for our employees. It employs more than 300 local residents, bringing up our grand total of Texas employees to close to 3,000.

When it opened in November 2004, this claims center employed 20 people. One year later, they moved into the new building at 2000 26th Street South, and quickly grew to more than 300 employees. The building includes a fitness center, cafeteria and a child care center. In 2014, a half-mile paved walking path was added behind the facility.
Several employees serve on local boards in the community, which brings light to work Centene does in the community and attracts the best candidates for jobs. Employees are proud to give back to their community through the United Way of Cascade County, where they pledged over $40,000 for 2015. Employees also work with local non-profit organizations, including Rescue Mission and the local Food Bank.
