Greater Phoenix offers a strong, established healthcare and life sciences industry, with some of the nation’s major players like Mayo Clinic, Dignity Health (formerly Catholic Healthcare West), Banner Healthcare and more located here. In the last decade, these leading institutions have been joined by those doing some of the most cutting-edge research and truly personalized medicine in the nation. Because Greater Phoenix strives to be one of the best technology cities in the nation, our healthcare and life sciences industry continues to lead the way in medical advancements and cutting edge healthcare procedures. 

Here, a multitude of collaborative partnerships take place among virtually every single company, university and research institution – creating a unique environment where innovation flourishes, and attracting a wide range of world-renowned talent to the region’s opportunities.
In this industry, jobs are growing three times faster here than the national average-perhaps due to the business tax credits and other economic development programs that are available in the industry. Just in the last 10 years, dozens of research institutions and facilities have opened in Greater Phoenix, including:
  • Alzheimer’s Institute
  • Arizona State University’s Biodesign Institute
  • Critical Path Institute
  • Celgene
  • Covance
  • Health Transformation Institute
  • International Genomics Consortium
