Covering a wide range of technology, products and services, Georgetown’s life sciences industry has attracted many businesses in the healthcare, pharmaceutical and medical technology fields. Life Sciences requires significant education and training for their workers, and our large labor shed supports this growing sector of the economy with over 74,000 professionals working in nursing and home healthcare, health technologies, physical sciences and other healthcare and bioscience positions. Jobs in these areas have grown in Georgetown in recent years and are expected to continue doing so.
Georgetown’s desirable location near top education institutions, strong entrepreneurial climate, abundant natural resources and sizable skilled workforce make our community an excellent location for companies working in the life sciences industry.
