Medical Capital

Home to more than 600 medical-related organizations, 27 colleges with medical education programming, and a dozen of the nation's top medical device manufacturers, Northeast Ohio is often dubbed the Medical Capital. All told, the economic impact totals somewhere around $35 billion. Add to that the upcoming Medical Mart and Convention Center, and it's easy to see why local leaders beam with civic pride when discussing Cleveland's healthcare industry. Since 2003, more than $830 million in venture funding was directed toward Northeast Ohio companies. Healthcare start-ups developing the latest biomedical breakthroughs are no longer breaking news; they are common occurrences. Stay tuned for the next big thing in Cleveland's medical capital narrative.
