Modern Healthcare

Healthcare job growth rebounded in 2014, especially in the year’s final quarter. December marked another robust month of hiring, contributing to nearly average employment gains for the year after five years of below-average growth. “The fourth quarter has just been blockbuster,” said Ani Turner, deputy director of the Altarum Institute’s Center for Sustainable Health Spending. Healthcare added 36,000 jobs per month on average during the final quarter of 2014, she said. That’s compared with third-quarter average monthly hires of 27,000 employees.
