Healthcare job growth continues
Modern Healthcare

Healthcare added 28,900 jobs last month to bring the sector’s employment across hospitals, ambulatory care, nursing and residential providers to 14.9 million workers, the latest federal data show. Robust growth in ambulatory care was largely responsible for the gains. November’s job growth was above the year’s monthly average of 23,550 jobs. Hiring this year has rebounded after a slowdown last year, which was most pronounced among hospitals, healthcare’s largest sector.
