Media, government, business and health care officials are finding the DRC’s recently launched publications to be of interest and helpful as they explore the industry in North Texas.
The Health Care Impact: Assessing the scope and depth of the health care industry in Dallas-Fort Worth
The Health Care Impact Brochure (PDF Download)
The brochure features 23 pages of content rich graphics, highlighting the economic impact of the health industry on the North Texas economy.
An economic impact of the health care system on the North Texas economy
Maps of current facilities and major capital projects including a list of new construction capital projects and their economic impact
An assessment of the workforce availability (physician, nursing, Manufacturing and corporate jobs, research jobs)
Educational institutions in the region and research in the region
An industry breakdown including a look at the corporations in the area, manufacturing activities, and R&D
and accolades and rankings of the industry
A limited print edition was produced in April 2011. The brochure has been so successful that the print edition has run out and we are seeking sponsors to allow for a second print edition. The brochure has been distributed to members of the 82nd Texas Legislature, area health care leadership, area economic development leadership, media and a broad mix of business executives. This tool developed is also being used for corporate location attraction programs and other regional marketing.
A few accolades on the project include:
“The Dallas Regional Chamber has put together a marketing piece that quickly allows the reader to understand the depth and scope of the health care industry in North Texas. This is one of the best pieces I have seen on the subject and I proud to hand it to my colleagues and our legislators in Austin as we make our case for responsible health care funding.” Stephen Mansfield, President and CEO, Methodist Health System
“The Health Care Impact brochure is a fantastic example of the kind of research and publications developed by the Dallas Regional Chamber. There is such a significant amount of important research underway in North Texas, and this document really highlights the opportunity for university research and entrepreneurial possibilities in the health space.” Denise Perry Simons, Senior Director Research Development, The University of North Texas
“The Health Care Impact brochure is an excellent publication and a good resource to fully appreciate the scope of health care industry in this region. Companies that serve this sector will be well served by the information in this brochure.” Ed Bowman, President and CEO, SOURCECORP

The Life Sciences Directory: The Life Science Companies of Dallas-Fort Worth
Life Science Directory (PDF Download)
The Dallas Regional Chamber has published bi-annually a life science directory that highlights the diversity of the region’s health focused entrepreneurs and established businesses. The DRC will for the first time partner with BIODFW to bring additional focus to the directory and expand its coverage of the important companies in North Texas.
The directory has found its way into the hands of many throughout the state and the country via trade shows, meetings, and other distribution. For the first time in 2011, the directory will be made available online. Currently a PDF download is available. Through the newly formed partnership with BIODFW, the directory will be made into a searchable, online database to further the success of this industry in North Texas. The new online directory is expected to launch in summer 2011.
“The Dallas Regional Chamber’s Life Science directory has been a great tool for my research and to promote collaborations between the universities, their researchers and companies in the sector. This is definitely one of the most successful initiatives of the DRC’s Life Science Council.” Denise Perry Simons, Senior Director Research Development, University of North Texas
