Cleveland’s 21st Century economic and employment environment builds on the city's rich industrial and entrepreneurial heritage. Starting with the innovation and entrepreneurship of John D. Rockefeller's SOHIO days, Cleveland's industry has evolved to a healthcare, technology and advanced manufacturing hub, home to the likes of Cleveland Clinic, Progressive Insurance and Sherwin Williams.
The Cleveland Clinic is one of the largest and most respected hospital systems in the nation and has been recognized as #1 in heart care in the U.S. for 20 years in a row. University Hospitals is an affiliate of Case Western Reserve University, and includes Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital (among the nation’s best children’s hospitals); Seidman Cancer Center (part of a system that earned the nation's highest designation through the National Cancer Institute); and MacDonald Women’s Hospital, Ohio’s only hospital for women. In addition, the Cleveland area has MetroHealth Medical Center and St. Vincent Charity Medical Center.
These hospitals provide a solid foundation for healthcare in Cleveland, not only giving quality care to residents and visitors from all over the world, but also contributing to innovation, entrepreneurship and community development through collaborating with educational and research institutions, incubating medical device companies, and training the next generation of physicians.
Fun fact: Cleveland is located on the largest fiber network in the nation. What's that mean? It means fast connections, less downtime, and the ability to quickly innovate in the technology sector.
Technology—particularly health technology and information technology—is hot in Cleveland. Organizations like Progressive Insurance, Hyland Software and Cleveland Clinic Innovations take advantage of the tech-heavy ecosystem by having headquarters in the Cleveland area. Through incubators like BioEnterprise and accelerators like JumpStart and Plug and Play, businesses have the ability to take ideas from research stage to trial and launch quickly, keeping a steady stream of innovation coming out of the region.
Cleveland is no stranger to manufacturing. We basically wrote the book on it. With a history saturated in aerospace and automotive manufacturing, we've taken a page from our past and started writing the future. Today's manufacturing industry is highly advanced, with steel producers (Arcelor Mittal, Majestic Steel), aerospace giants (NASA, Lockheed Martin, Parker Hannifin), medical device manufacturers (Simbionix), and more calling Cleveland home.
It doesn't stop there. Many industries are reaping the benefits of Cleveland's affordability, proximity (to waterways, to airports, and to other major cities) and talent pipeline to build, grow and invest in thriving businesses.
