GLI gave UofL its Silver Fleur-de Lis Award for the university’s significant role in recruiting Signature HealthCARE to relocate its headquarters to Louisville. GLI also commended UofL for its commitment to and investment in the International Center for Long Term Care Innovation.

This award recognizes the University of Louisville’s role as an economic force and partner in our community. UofL is committed to providing the research, technical skills and resources to help Signature, the Center for Long Term Innovation and other Louisville companies thrive in the 21st century economy, said UofL President James Ramsey.

Signature HealthCARE also received a Silver Fleur-de-Lis Award. By relocating from Florida, the company brought 140 jobs to Louisville.

Nucleus, part of the UofL Foundation, and Signature HealthCARE announced that the long-term care company would be moving to Louisville and creating the International Center for Long Term Care Innovation last March. Signature also will be the main tenant in the first building at the downtown research park that Nucleus is developing at the former Haymarket property.
