Economic Impact Study
The Council partnered with the Business and Economic Research Center at Middle Tennessee State University to develop a comprehensive impact study of the Nashville health care industry and its economic impact locally, nationally and globally.
This study, released in July 2010, uses the most current industry data available and profiled Council member companies to fully analyze the far-reaching impact of the Nashville health care cluster on business revenue, personal income, employment, office space and other factors.
