Pharmaceutical giant McKesson Corp. has moved into its new $157 million campus in Las Colinas, bringing more than 1,200 employees — with plans to hire more than a thousand additional employees in the next few years.

1000px-McKesson_Logo.svgThe two-building, 525,000-square-foot campus near State Highway 161 and State Highway 114 in Irving will bring some healthy office options to its growing employee base, said McKesson CEO John Hammergren.

By bringing healthy options — such as fitness and food — to the regional campus in Irving, McKesson’s growing employee base will have even healthier lifestyles and become even more productive as the hub enhances collaboration.

The San Francisco-based McKesson’s new modern workspaces include open work and collaboration areas with 99 percent of the company’s workstations having access to natural light and the outdoors.

McKesson also added a 4,000-square-foot fitness center and exercise room to the existing buildings — which were formerly used by NEC Corp. — to bring healthy activities to the campus. The buildings also sit within walking distance to some landscaped trails.

McKesson will have a dining hall with healthy food options for its employees.

Since confirming the long-rumored deal last year, McKesson has added about 300 new employees with another 75 open positions currently available at the campus.

With plans to add upwards of 1,000 new employees, McKesson received a $9.75 million grant from the Texas Enterprise Fund. At the time, this was the largest such grant awarded by Gov. Greg Abbott’s administration.

In all, McKesson brings an estimated $4.7 billion total economic impact over the next decade.
