Reinventing the future of health care

Nassau County is situated in Northeast Florida's health and life science hub, comprised of more than 20 hospitals, including the Mayo Clinic, one of only three in the nation.  Northeast Florida continues to emerge as one of the Southeast's leading sites for world-class health care and is home to employers such as e-Zassi, Vistakon, McKesson and Medtronic.

Florida State College at Jacksonville offers a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences degree, which prepares Northeast Florida students to enter the workforce in analytical/research laboratories and health sciences.  Graduates may also pursue opportunities in pharmaceutics, medical manufacturing and clinical and environmental chemistry.  Nassau County is less than two hours from the University of Florida College of Medicine, where scientists are performing breakthrough research at the Evelyn F. and William L. McKnight Brain Institute of UF, the UF Institute on Aging and the UF Genetics Institute.
 
From east to west, Nassau County offers a number of sites for a variety of specialties within the life sciences realm, which includes medical device manufacturing, research and development facilities or corporate offices.      

The NCEDB exists because of the generous support of the Nassau County Board of Commissioners, our local municipalities and economic development partners.
