Advancing Mississippi’s Health and Economy

The Learning/Medical City at Tradition is designed to be a center of higher education and technical training in health care, a magnet for research and innovation related to diabetes and obesity, and an avenue to train and employ thousands in the high-wage health care industry. It is seeded in the quest to find a cure for diabetes, a disease that is detrimental to forward progress in Mississippi. The state’s diabetes and obesity health crisis costs the state $3.5 billion annually. The result is weak worker productivity, high poverty rates and low labor participation.

Tradition is a major economic development project with a scope and impact similar in size to the Nissan, Toyota, Yokohama, and Paccar projects in Mississippi. With the planned addition of a medical school and ancillary medical and life sciences businesses, Tradition will grow rapidly to resemble the medical cities at Texas’ MD Anderson and Florida’s Lake Nona.

The 600-Acre Learning/Medical City at Tradition Currently Includes:

 William Carey University’s Schools of Pharmacy and Nursing, currently offering a wide range of bachelor and graduate degrees to more than 3,000 students

The Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College’s Bryant Center School of Nursing and Simulation Lab

Memorial Hospital of Gulfport’s Primary Care Clinic

Many more exciting developments are in process, such as the assembly of a world-class medical research team by the National Diabetes and Obesity Research Institute on the Tradition campus.
