A Colorado-based company that provides elective medical transportation, home care and the delivery of nutritious meals is closing its North Haven office in June and laying off 59 people.

ModivCare is closing its office at 127 Washington Avenue in North Haven on June 1, when its lease expires, according to a worker adjustment and retraining notice filed Friday by the company with the Connecticut Department of Labor. Of the 59 people who will lose their jobs, 39 work as call center customer service representatives.

Until January of this year, the 20-year-old company was known as Providence Service Corp. It was initially based in Stamford, then moved its headquarters to Atlanta before relocating to Denver again in March of last year.


Daniel Greenleaf, CEO of the company, recently told the Denver Business Journal that since the start of the pandemic, the company has delivered nearly 2 million meals to food insecure people across the country. ModivCare also offers approximately 75 million trips per year for medical appointments.

The company has 19,000 employees nationwide. ModivCare’s food transportation and delivery services are available in 49 states and its home personal care division operates in seven states.

North Haven top picker Michael Freda said the company told state officials it was unable to renew its lease and chose to consolidate its call center elsewhere. The company will have 28 employees, who are not among the layoffs, handling customer service calls from their homes.
