Medford Relocation Guide
Medford is located in Jackson County, Oregon. As of July 1, 2011, the city had a total population of 75,180 and a metropolitan area population of 207,010, making the Medford MSA the 4th largest metro area in Oregon. The city was named in 1883 by David Loring, civil engineer and right-of-way agent for the Oregon and California Railroad for his home town of Medford, Massachusetts and in recognition of its supposed position on the middle ford of Bear Creek.
As there are no towns of equal or larger size within several hours’ drive, Medford is a regional hub for medical services. The two major medical centers in the city, Rogue Valley Medical Center and Providence Medford Medical Center, employ over 2,000 people. As Medford is also a retirement destination, assisted living and senior services have become an important part of the economy.
Medford is the county seat of Jackson County.
