Tomorrow’s healthcare nexus

In recent years, Charlotte has seen exciting developments in the healthcare space. Between 2010 and 2019, our life sciences sector grew by 72% in the Charlotte MSA. This growth will be further supported by a life sciences innovation district, anchored by Charlotte’s first medical school — a collaboration between Atrium Health, Wake Forest Baptist Health and Wake Forest University — scheduled to open in 2024.
