Leading Hub for Health Tech
Over the past decade, Tampa Bay has positioned itself as a major player in the healthcare sector with the recruitment of four of the world’s largest biopharmaceutical companies: Bristol Myers Squibb, Johnson & Johnson, Amgen, and most recently, Pfizer. Hillsborough County is also home to premier healthcare facilities like Tampa General Hospital and Moffitt Cancer Center, and talent development clusters at USF Health Morsani College of Medicine, USF Health Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation, and Ultimate Medical Academy.
These world-class institutions work seamlessly together to form pioneering partnerships that spur new developments and innovations in the health tech space. For instance, Tampa General will directly invest in healthcare and healthcare delivery companies through its venture capital fund InnoVentures. Moffitt’s Office of Innovation forges partnerships with startups and industry to bring cutting edge ideas and discoveries to the marketplace.
