Sacramento Business Journal

Hospitals and hospital-related spending contribute $11.7 billion annually to the region, a new report concludes. The industry generates more than 84,000 jobs at wages and salaries almost 70 percent higher than the average for all occupations in the state — and the sector is growing twice as fast as overall employment. The numbers indicate the economic clout of a growing industry that expanded during the recession and is poised to continue hiring as the population ages and more people need care.
