Healthcare

Le Bonheur Children's Hospital

St. Jude Children's Hospital

Healthcare is undeniably one of Memphis' great advantages. The region supports numerous hospitals, including top-ranked providers, and the city is known for its strong foundation in research, bioscience, orthopedics, medical devices, pediatric cancer, and infectious disease. Healthcare is our competitive strength and a gift that we export to the rest of the world; discoveries made here have helped push medicine forward. And with amazing local groups like the Church Health Center working to ensure access, Memphis is moving foward as a healthcare leader and a healthy community.
