Philadelphia: Exploring the City’s Medical Industry

The city of Philadelphia is located within the borders of the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. Geographically, the city is situated in the northwestern part of the country, specifically in Philadelphia County, of which it functions as the seat of government. Philadelphia is considered as a consolidated city- county, which is described as the merged form of the two governments. A consolidated city- county has the power and responsibilities of both governments, but it is different from an independent city. The city is located along the fall line, which is the very thing that separates the Piedmont from the Atlantic Coastal Plain. The city of Philadelphia is also along the meeting point of two rivers, namely the Schuykill River and Delaware River.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city of Philadelphia is home to a total population of 1, 526, 006 as of the year 2010. It ranks most populous city in the state, 2nd most populous city in the East Coast and the 5th most populous city in the whole country. In addition, Philadelphia is also part of the greater Philadelphia metropolitan area, which is the 6th largest MSA in the United States.

When it comes to firsts, the city of Philadelphia can boast a long list of achievements. It is the home of the country’s first school and zoo. It is where the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were made. The city was also dubbed as the country’s mural capital because of their larger-than-life creations. However, many would remember the city, not because of the first zoo or the murals, but because of their achievements in the field of medicine.

As the economic hub of the state, Philadelphia is known for its biomedical firms and pharmaceutical companies. In fact, the city belongs to the top 2 when it comes to the health care industry’s employment rate. The rapid growth of the medical sector allowed companies to expand and take in more workers with qualifications in health, education and research. The first medical school in the country, the Academy and College of Philadelphia was also born in Philadelphia. Founded by the one of America’s Fathers, Benjamin Franklin, the school became part of Philadelphia’s legacy in the industry of medicine.

The city is home to teaching hospitals, such as the Temple University School of Medicine, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Thomas Jefferson University and the Drexel University College of Medicine. Apart from these, there are also pharmaceutical companies that provide a large percent of employment to the citizens, like Merck, Johnson & Johnson, Wyeth and GlaxoSmith.
