Significant locational focus
Aside from major international corporations like FRESENIUS and LILLY, who have based their corporate headquarters in Bad Homburg, the time-honoured spa town is also home to numerous small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) harbouring vast innovative potential as well as a collection of renowned clinics, medical institutes and rehab and care facilities. More than 5,000 industry professionals are employed in Bad Homburg by this sector, giving it a 17% share of local employment. The healthcare value chain offers many opportunities for business collaborations in both the horizontal and vertical sense. Many successful business partnerships have been established through personal contacts. One of these is the co-operation between Inter-Medico GmbH and Sanitätshaus Rosenkranz Scherer. Inter-Medico plans and builds hospitals, mostly in eastern Germany, and now purchases its home-care products from Rosenkranz Scherer – quickly, easily and manufacturer-independently.
In an effort to promote business collaboration, the Business Development Office arranges regular meetings for businesses belonging to the local healthcare industry.
House of Pharma & Healthcare
Bad Homburg is also an active supporting member of the House of Pharma & Healthcare (HoP), thereby highlighting its many advantages as a healthcare location in the Frankfurt Rhine-Main region.
The HoP sees itself as a network of public and private partnerships that combines various interests along the pharmaceutical value chain in order to develop solutions to the challenges faced by national and international healthcare systems. As such, the HoP brings together the domains of business, science and politics, patient organisations, physicians, pharmacists and health insurance companies.
