The Health Care Industry in the Nashville MSA: Its Scope and Impact on the Regional Economy
AbstractThrough a variety of methods, this study examines the reasons Nashville has become a salient locus in the national health care industry and analyzes the trends and scope of the core health care industry in Nashville from a comparative perspective. In addition, it provides a detailed assessment of the economic impact of the health care industry cluster on the regional economy. Furthermore, it provides a benchmarking initiative that compares Nashville with 12 peer Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) using a host of selected health care-related indicators. Finally, the study profiles the member companies of the Nashville Health Care Council (NHCC) and presents the results of a CEO Confidence Survey.
