Eight award-winning hospitals. Over 75,000 employees. Some of the top physician groups in the Midwest. As the largest and fastest-expanding industry in DuPage County, Healthcare is not only attending to the well-being of our workforce—it’s building the strength of our economy and driving the prosperity of our future.
HEALTH IS THE LIFE-BLOOD OF OUR ECONOMY
The Healthcare industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in DuPage County, adding 3,945 new jobs in the last five years. And, it’s expected to add nearly 700 more over the next 12 months.
In 2020, Healthcare and social assistance contributed $6.7 billion to the total GDP.
WHERE HEALTH MEETS WEALTH
Even more than the health of our economy, we care for the health of our people. In fact, DuPage was ranked #1 healthiest county in Illinois (out of 102) by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute.
Both Edward Hospital in Naperville and Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield were named among the nation’s best hospitals, according to IBM Watson Health’s 25th Annual Top 100 Hospitals list.
