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.

If you have questions about the map, would like to share an idea or discuss healthcare opportunities in Ohio, please contact me via email or phone

Much more than just “drug houses”; State grants to fund commercial building demolition would propel county land banks as key drivers of Ohio’s economic development

In late April 2021, a legislative committee in the Ohio House held its second hearing to consider creating a $100 million grant program, exclusively for county land banks, to fund commercial building demolition. Ohio’s land bank statutes are recognized as a national model, uniquely providing an opt-in for county commissioners to direct tax collections to fund their county land banks’ activities. That revenue model, coupled with allocations from the state’s Hardest Hit Fund (specifically, the sun-setting Neighborhood Initiative Program), allowed land banks to grow in number during the past decade and thrive in addressing so-called nonproductive land in their communities.

Partnership Produces Success in Paulding County Through Northwest State Community College

Archbold, Ohio – Communication, collaboration, and partnerships are all sometimes a difficult ask. The ultimate goal of all three is to produce action that leads to meeting a goal or need. At Paulding High School, the goal was met as five students completed the Northwest State Community College welding course. The offering, consisting of two college level welding courses, came to fruition alongside the OhioMeansJobs-Defiance and Paulding Counties Office, the Paulding County Economic Development Office, Paulding High School, and Northwest State Community College.
