Creating Medical Education Connections Within Our Community

We have been working closely with educational institutions, local and state officials, financial institutions, and businesses to provide information, guidance, and tactical support as we work through this unprecedented time.

Our region is rapidly and responsibly training healthcare students to provide additional assistance to the healthcare industry. The RAEDC has connected with our educational institutions to expedite training for new medical personal.

This is what we have always done and will continue to do. We work with our partners and to find solutions and connections that benefit our community.

REMINDER: Continue to take all necessary precautions; including washing your hands, maintaining 6 ft distance from others, and stay home.

The role of the  Rockford Area Economic Development Council  (RAEDC) is to collaborate with regional stakeholders to cultivate opportunities for primary job growth that increase the economic well-being of our region. The RAEDC markets the region to attract new capital investment, while assisting existing business with resources for sustainable growth. The RAEDC works closely with many partners to improve the competitiveness of the region by taking what it learns from the region's employers and engaging the community in the daily work of economic development. As the economic development organization for the region, the RAEDC also serves as the area's data collection agency on all new capital investment, retained and created quality jobs, and renovated commercial/industrial space.
