A cool office campus can make a huge difference in worker productivity and innovation — something that companies like Google and Epic Systems Corporation take seriously.Glassdoor shared with us some amazing photos of Epic Systems’ $500 million campus in Verona, Wisc., featuring an Indiana Jones-inspired tunnel, a New York City subway car replica, and model of the New York Stock Exchange, among other things.

The tech company, which develops electronic medical records, has around 5,000 employees and expects to grow by another 1,000 by the end of 2012 — which is why it’s building even more cool buildings, which the city estimates will cost around $75 million.

It’s a fast-growing company because it’s in an “industry that is projected to grow more than 12 per cent a year, topping $8.3 billion by 2016,” according to the Wisconsin State Journal, which also reports that Epic’s 2011 revenues are expected to reach about $1.1 billion.

Epic makes software for mid-size and large medical groups, hospitals and integrated healthcare organisations. It serves 240 clients and says 1 in 4 physicians will use EpicCare once its rollout is complete.
