Health Leaders Media

The healthcare sector created 19,000 jobs in April—accounting for nearly one in six of the 115,000 new jobs in the larger economy for the month, new federal data shows.

April job figures released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics indicate that healthcare sector job growth is decelerating apace with slowing job growth across the larger economy. Like healthcare, the overall economy recorded strong job growth in January and February that sharply tailed off in March and April.
