Health insurer expects new customer-friendly waterfront location to open by April

SPRINGFIELD — PacificSource Health Plans is proud to announce plans to expand to downtown Portland’s Crown Plaza building. PacificSource recently signed the lease, which will give the health insurer a prominent presence in the downtown Portland market, providing more visibility and accessibility to business leaders as well as current and prospective members.

After extensive tenant improvements to reconfigure the space, which is located at 1500 SW 1st Ave., Suite 100A, the downtown location is tentatively scheduled to open in late March or early April of 2016. Located on the Crown Plaza building’s ground floor, with convenient access for brokers, business leaders, and current and prospective members, the new space will primarily house PacificSource’s sales and marketing teams.

“PacificSource has been eyeing expansion to a second location in the greater Portland area for several years, but we had some very specific criteria and hadn’t found the right fit until now,” said Sharon Thomson, Vice President of Community Strategy and Marketing for PacificSource. “The Crown Plaza building’s proximity to mass transit and the freeway is convenient for both staff and visitors, allows us plenty of room for growth, and gives us a strong presence with the business community in the heart of downtown Portland.”

The downtown Portland office will bring PacificSource’s total number of Oregon locations to five, including existing offices in Springfield, Tigard, Bend, and Medford.
