New Tool for You: An Interactive Healthcare Map
Healthcare is one of the fastest growing sectors across the U.S. and Ohio. According to CNBC, healthcare is only second to technology. Healthcare brings high-paying jobs and significant investment, which is why JobsOhio continues to leverage Ohio’s global leaders in patient care, innovative research and academic institutions to grow and attract leading life science companies to the state.
In partnership with BioOhio, JobsOhio recently launched an interactive map that illustrates some of Ohio’s top assets and biggest employers.
When companies look to grow or invest in a new area, they often inquire about related assets, supply chain and talent. We believe the best way to illustrate the breadth and depth of Ohio’s healthcare employers is through a visual representation that allows companies to see the density of related employers and potential partnerships across the state.
The JobsOhio map shows the largest 100+ healthcare employers in Ohio and recent JobsOhio project wins. For a complete list of all local healthcare companies, BioOhio maintains a complete database and mapping capabilities through the Ohio Bioscience Resource Directory.
Because of JobsOhio’s strong collaboration with regional and local partners, our collective efforts have delivered 15,000 job commitments in this sector over the past five years. We’re dedicated to working with these economic development partners to continually engage the more than 3,000 healthcare companies already calling Ohio home, as well as the countless others who have yet to invest. The more opportunities we have, the greater the outcome for every community and the state of Ohio.
