HEALTHCARE

Although not recognized as a true cluster, the healthcare sector is one of the primary economic drivers in the region, and its presence can be seen through a number of the other priority clusters in the region. The recent merger of Yale-New Haven Hospital and the Hospital of St. Raphael’s has made the new Yale-New Haven Hospital one of the biggest in the nation, hosting over 1,500 beds and employing over 12,000 people in the region. The Veterans Affairs Connecticut Healthcare System and Mid-State Medical Center also are among the top employers in the region. Although not necessarily an industry sector that the region will focus on recruitment of new hospitals, these facilities generally expand as needed to meet the needs of the region’s population. Yale-New Haven Hospital has just opened a new facility in the adjacent town of West Haven, known as Yale-New Haven West Campus, and its footprint can be seen throughout the region in outpatient care facilities. The region is home to two medical schools, with Quinnipiac University opening its new medical school in the fall of 2014.

Healthcare was one of two sectors in the region that saw significant growth in employment over the last five years, employing over 46,000 people in 2011. In fact, 10 of the top 15 projected fastest growing occupations in the South Central Connecticut region are predicted to be in the Healthcare sector. With the world class university system throughout the region and a strong research and development presence, the medical and diagnostic laboratory sub-sector is one of the highest concentrated in terms of employment when compared to the nation. The healthcare sector continues to be a strong driver of overall economic growth in the region, and is projected tobe that way for many years to come.
