Connecticut’s health sector represents a robust infrastructure of practitioners, experts, researchers, educators, manufacturers, employers, providers, and innovators. Over 200,000 jobs are rooted in the health sector, the employers of which generate more than $140 billion in annual revenue.  Not only is health a major economic driver in Connecticut, it spurs continual growth and advancement, making the state a center of excellence.

The combination of Connecticut’s unique base of health sector assets that include health insurance companies, hospitals, medical schools, research capacity, and specialty practices clearly positions Connecticut as a center of health excellence, a position that has been enhanced with the State’s $1 billion commitment to the UConn Health Center and Jackson Laboratory campuses.
