The region has been designated a mega region of the future and a driver of U.S. economic growth. The City of Hollywood offers:

  • Pro-business mindset at local and state level offering low-cost, low-tax, high-quality corporate environments.
  • Superior health care services. Hollywood is home to the award-winning and nationally recognized Memorial Regional Healthcare System, the fifth-largest public health care system in the nation.
