Health Leaders Media

Healthcare job growth slowed considerably in May as compared with April and March, but the sector was one of the few bright spots in an otherwise anemic job report Friday from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Hospitals created 4,100 payroll additions in May, after posting 10,100 new jobs in April, and 10,200 new jobs in March. In 2011, hospitals have created 36,200 new jobs, compared with 11,800 new jobs in the first five months of 2010, BLS data and preliminary data show.
