Mercury News -- Right here in Pennsylvania, we have the potential to create tens of thousands of additional jobs in the medical device industry and be a leader in the creation of life-saving technologies and products. Pennsylvania is currently the fourth-largest producer of medical devices in the country and home to 576 medical device companies. Already, the industry provides more than 100,000 jobs among medical device companies, suppliers and other supporting businesses, and jobs in the medical device field pay 25 percent more than the average private sector job.
