The healthcare sector adds $52 billion to the North Texas economy each year and supports more than 600,000 regional jobs. These two facts figured prominently into D Magazine Partners’ decision in July 2012 to start a news site that focuses on the business of healthcare in Dallas, Tarrant, Denton, and Collin counties. D CEO Healthcare covers issues of importance to three core groups: physicians and physician practices, hospitals and a broad range of healthcare companies—and the professionals who serve them, and employers and insurance/wellness companies.
