CONSIDER THIS: Healthcare Corridor

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A few years ago a plan was announced to focus on developing a healthcare corridor in the area near the Jackson Medical Mall and UMMC.

Consider This:

There are announcements like this taking place in communities across the country every year. Some develop as planned, some evolve but many are eventually abandoned. Fortunately, the plan that was hatched in Mississippi is showing promise. In the past few weeks there have been several announcements, including the Meridian in Fondren, that will help this initiative continue to move forward and transform the area.

Success breeds success. As these projects come online and prove their worth, expect to see more development in the healthcare zone. And although redeveloping downtown may take decades, continued success in the healthcare region could spill over into the central business district. In fact, this economic focus on health could eventually lead to a renaissance for all areas of the Capital City.
