A global health care force based in a dy­namic city

Modern Healthcare - - NASHVILLE HEALTH CARE COUNCIL -

The evo­lu­tion and cur­rent mo­men­tum of Nashville’s health care community is sig­nif­i­cant not only to the re­gion, but also to the na­tional health care land­scape. On be­half of the Nashville Health Care Coun­cil Board of Di­rec­tors, it is an honor to part­ner with Mod­ern Health­care on this spe­cial sec­tion about Nashville’s dy­namic health care in­dus­try. The Nashville area is home to 250 health care com­pa­nies which cre­ate 200,000 jobs locally and 400,000 jobs glob­ally. Nashville’s health care or­ga­ni­za­tions are lead­ers in hospi­tal man­age­ment, out­pa­tient surgery, dis­ease man­age­ment, well­ness, pop­u­la­tion health, health in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy and be­yond. Our hospi­tal man­age­ment com­pa­nies own or op­er­ate more than half of the in­vestorowned hos­pi­tals in the na­tion. Nashville’s health care clus­ter is un­matched. It ac­counts for more than $70 bil­lion in an­nual rev­enue. The in­dus­try suc­cess found in Nashville is the re­sult of an in­no­va­tive en­vi­ron­ment that has a long tradition of en­cour­ag­ing en­trepreneurs to found new ven­tures in the area. The community also sup­ports the con­tin­ued de­vel­op­ment of our ex­ist­ing large and di­verse health care sec­tor, and works to at­tract new health care com­pa­nies to re­lo­cate to the re­gion.

“In Nashville, a col­lab­o­ra­tive spirit fu­els a con­tin­u­ing de­sire to im­prove peo­ple’s health, care and out­comes.”

While home to more than four decades of in­dus­try in­no­va­tion, our pas­sion stems from how we af­fect the lives of pa­tients and their fam­i­lies. In Nashville, a col­lab­o­ra­tive spirit fu­els a con­tin­u­ing de­sire to im­prove peo­ple’s health, care and out­comes. We are grate­ful to Mod­ern Health­care for telling the story of Nashville, the na­tion’s premier health care in­dus­try cap­i­tal.
