That figure is expected to rocket to around 726 jobs by 2029, the company said. “Those are projections based on the rate of growth, not just here in North Carolina, but the growth of healthcare in the region,” said Blair Klein, Medline’s vice president of Corporate Communications, shortly after the announcement at the Richard Whitted Building in Hillsborough on Thursday morning. “There’s a lot of need in this region.”
