 St. Louis-based Fortune 100-company Express Scripts says it will build a new patient-service call center in Joplin, creating 100 new jobs.

Express Scripts is a pharmacy benefits company that manages more than a billion prescriptions each year for millions of patients in the U.S.

Gov. Jay Nixon announced Thursday that the company’s new patient-service center will mean a 960,000 dollars investment in Joplin's economy.

The state of Missouri provided economic incentives to Express Scripts as part of its expansion in Joplin.
