What is Medical Alley?

It is a region in Minnesota that was said to follow the corridor from Rochester through Duluth; but as the years have stretched, so have the borders. Medical Alley is home to the world’s most concentrated health technology cluster made up of medical device, biopharmaceutical, diagnostic and digital health industry leaders. It is the birthplace of the modern medical device and a hot spot of innovation. It is where industry intersects with care providers, insurance companies and research organizations to improve patient access and lower costs.
