In 2016, US-based Fazzi Healthcare Services established a new coding and healthcare services company in Limerick, with plans to create 300 jobs in the next five years.
The company provides expert, accurate, and secure ICD-10 medical coding – including help converting from previous ICD editions – to hospitals, doctors, homecare providers, healthcare centres, health insurers and governmental healthcare entities across the globe.
Dennis Barry, Director of Fazzi Healthcare Services explained why the company located in Limerick: “According to Dr. Robert Fazzi, company Founder and Managing Partner, we chose Limerick first and foremost due to the number of incredibly smart, talented and motivated people available to become Fazzi Healthcare Services employees. And that has proven to be the case. The people who are working for us are super smart and dedicated and they’re doing an excellent job.”
Fazzi Healthcare Services are based in a centrally located office, at George’s Quay in the heart of Limerick city centre.
“The office is walking distance to town and it’s easy to get the airport. Additionally, Limerick is easy to fly in an out of. It’s just a great location all the way around.
“We love the fact that our employees can walk to town and take full advantage of what the city has to offer. They work very hard and we want their job to be a great complement to their personal lives. Additionally, our location near the city centre also allows us the flexibility and accessibility to easily meet with our business associates and other providers. It’s a great place to do business!
“The quality of the work that our employees here are doing is outstanding. We’re very busy and we’re excited about a number of new opportunities that are in various stages of development,” added Dennis.

Having started with a group of 20 employees, they have already doubled that to 40, with plans to add another 20 this year.
“We are working hard to grow and we have a number of exciting opportunities beyond servicing the US home health and hospice market. The fact that we’ve doubled our staff already is a great indication that things are going well. We’re very excited,” explained Dennis.
Noting the support received from IDA Ireland and Limerick City and County Council, Dennis said: “Everyone at the IDA and the city of Limerick have been instrumental in helping us to find everything we need. That includes office space that suits our needs and that’s in an excellent location. We couldn’t have done it without them and we are extremely appreciative of all the help and support we’ve received. And, honestly, it’s more than that. We have felt incredibly welcomed and the process has been remarkably smooth.”
