Now let’s dive into the many benefits Houston has to offer as a medical hub: 

A Hub of Diversity 

Houston’s vast population and robust medical community provide abundant opportunities for networking, professional growth, and expansion. For those looking to establish private practices, the city offers a supportive environment teeming with like-minded individuals and potential peers. According to Axios, the city’s metro population has surpassed 7.5 million and as noted by TMC, more than 8 million patients visit every year. Furthermore, Houston is America’s most diverse city, with 145 distinct spoken languages, 25% of all residents are foreign-born, and is home to over 300 different cultures. Beyond its sheer size, Houston stands as a significant landmark in the medical and research fields. 

As reported by Colliers, the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical center globally, calls Houston home. The Texas Medical Center is home to cutting-edge research, raking in $850 in NIH funding: Houston is the place to be if you’re looking to grow at the center of healthcare innovation. Furthermore, it is a great place to build your network and referral system, as the TMC alone employs over 120,000 workers, physicians, and scientists, creating a thriving ecosystem for medical professionals.

Fostering Business Growth

Houston’s appeal extends beyond its thriving medical community. The city is a haven for entrepreneurial ventures, as there is no corporate income tax. An up and coming startup hub with over 220 healthcare startup companies and 24 companies on the Fortune 500 list, Houston is most definitely a business-positive city, as, according to Houston Innovation Map, venture capital investment has also increased by 250% since 2016. WIth business incentives like the Texas Enterprise Fund and the TMC Innovation Accelerator, the community in Houston is incredibly supportive of the entrepreneurial spirit. 

With a low cost of living, Houston is a great place to get started with a private medical practice. According to Houston.Org, among metropolitan US cities, Houston offers the third lowest cost of living. Furthermore, Houston offers a variety of ready-to-use office spaces and co-working spaces. These spaces are becoming increasingly popular, especially in the medical community. The benefits of medical co-working, especially when first starting out or testing a market area for your private practice, are ten-fold. The benefits range from monumental savings in annual expenses to having a community and support network from the start.

What Our Providers Have To Say...

Joining MedcoShare has been a true dream for a first time business owner like myself. Having the peace of mind of a consistent overhead month to month, while also having the freedom to sign up for as much or as little time as I need, has provided a wonderful combination of flexibility and simplicity.

The facilities at MedCoShare are clean, professional, and what you would expect from a high-quality medical office. My patients agree, commenting frequently on how nice the office space is. I have had the opportunity to interact with many members of the MedCoShare team... They will do what they can to help your practice grow and minimize the headaches of leasing medical office space.

They take care of the administrative tasks, offer flexibility in office hours, and have a supportive and responsive staff. They have truly been instrumental in my journey, and I'm confident they will be for you too.

We joined MedCoShare about a year ago and I can say with great confidence that's it's been a great experience for us so far. It's been exciting to enter the Philadelphia market. Patient feedback has been positive. There's an easy check-in process, wait times have been minimal to non-existent, and the lobby has a medspa type of vibe. We look forward to growing with MedCoShare.

The MedCoShare team has been very responsive and easy to work with when my schedule changes.  When my clients arrive, they feel safe, comfortable, and the aesthetics have an excellent image for my business.  I don't have to worry about maintaining the facilities and can focus on my equipment and patients.

Being a new small business owner in the midst of a pandemic, MedCoShare has been a blessing.  Where else could I start a business, build clients, and have a flexible membership with no long-term commitments for peace of mind during the uncertainty?!  If business speeds up or slows down then I can adjust my membership accordingly.
