FORT WAYNE -

The developers of the massive Electric Works project in Fort Wayne have announced another tenant. RTM Ventures says Medical Informatics Engineering has signed a letter of intent to locate some of its future northeast Indiana operations at the mixed-use innovation district.

The Fort Wayne-based healthcare IT company says its initial plans for Electric Works is an advanced research and development center, as well as a state-of-the-art "virtual presence" training center. MIE did not specify how many jobs would be created as a result of the move.

"MIE has been headquartered in Fort Wayne since the company was launched in 1995, and we plan to continue supporting our community and initiatives like Electric Works that are reinvigorating downtown," Doug Horner, founder and chief executive officer of MIE, said in a news release. "As we look ahead, we anticipate growth in the health information technology sector and the employer and clinical clients we serve and adding more space at Electric Works will help us attract and retain the management, software development and deployment staff needed to support scalable expansion."

MIE is the latest tenant announced for the $440 million Electric Works project. Last month, developers announced a deal with Parkview Health to serve as an anchor tenant for the district. Indiana Tech in Fort Wayne also signed a letter of intent late last year to set up operations.

Earlier this month, RTM Ventures secured the last of the $62 million in public funding for the project, which the developers had previously said was necessary in order to move forward.
