The Medical Campus generates an annual economic impact of over $7.5 billion for the St. Louis region, according to an economic model maintained by the St. Louis Regional Commerce and Growth Association. With more than 26,000 employees, the combined Medical Campus institutions are among the largest employers in the St. Louis metropolitan area.
Covering 186 acres over 18 city blocks, the Medical Campus is positioned at the intersection of St. Louis’s Central West End and Forest Park Southeast (also known as the Grove) neighborhoods. The Washington University Medical Center Redevelopment Corporation (WUMCRC) has invested heavily in these neighborhoods to improve quality of life for its residents and visitors. A partnership between Washington University School of Medicine and BJC Health Care, WUMCRC develops and funds programs focused on economic and housing development, human and social service opportunities, security improvements and public art projects.
The Washington University Medical Campus is also located along the eastern edge of Forest Park, which has earned a reputation as one of the country’s (some say the world’s) most beautiful city parks. Across the park to the west is Washington University’s historic Danforth Campus, home to most of the university’s academic divisions.
