Modern Healthcare

The healthcare sector continued to create jobs in November, albeit at a slower pace than previous months in 2011, with 17,200 jobs added, tempering the news that the nation’s unemployment rate dropped to 8.6%.

The drop in the country’s unemployment rate comes after two months of holding steady. The unemployment rate in September and October stood at 9.1%, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
