Health & Life Sciences

An Rx for Career Breakthroughs

There’s a reason 40% of Temple residents are employed in the healthcare field. Some of state’s greatest healthcare institutions and professionals feel right at home in Central Texas.

It all begins at the Temple Medical and Education District. This 2,200-acre district on-the-rise is a hub for groundbreaking research and regenerative medicine with plans including a new Everest Rehabilitation Hospital and additional housing. Baylor Scott & White Health anchors the district and is home to the only Level I trauma center between Austin and Dallas. Neighbors McLane Children’s Hospital and the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center provide specialized services to young and retired military.

Even more innovation takes place at the Temple Health and Bioscience District. At Temple startup SiMMo3D, medical engineers are using 3D technology to create customized medical device replicas. Also housed within the district is Emergent Biotechnologies, which is developing pharmaceuticals to treat preeclampsia and gynecologic cancer.

With so much ingenuity, health and life sciences are on the move in Temple. What’s not going up? Costs. Salaries stretch further in an area where housing prices are low and lifestyle amenities are plenty.
