Healthcare

Palm Beach County is home to reliable, modern healthcare along with hospitals, doctors, and research-based treatment facilities. Healthcare in the Palm Beaches is not only a major source of jobs but also a springboard for a bright economic future.

Our county is home to some of the nation’s best hospitals, and both residents and visitors have access to thousands of qualified physicians as well as excellent hospitals, nursing homes, outpatient facilities, and specialty care centers ensuring the highest quality of care.

Each of Palm Beach County’s state-of-the-art healthcare facilities has a  long-standing reputation for professionalism and a commitment to preserving patient dignity while providing superior care.

"We added a new surgical residency last July, and we continue to produce well-trained physicians for Palm Beach County."

Gina Melby, CEO, JFK Medical Center

Palm Beach County Quick Fact: The healthcare industry employs more than 50,000 in Palm Beach County alone, with more than 1,500 healthcare-related businesses.

With the county’s recent focus on attracting new healthcare and bioscience businesses to the area, local communities and educational institutions are developing comprehensive healthcare and educational programs to train students for tomorrow’s professional workforce.

For example, Palm Beach State College is actively training students for allied healthcare positions. Some local area middle and high schools within the School District of Palm Beach County now offer students the opportunity to study a healthcare-related curriculum intended to train students for careers in the healthcare and bioscience industries.
