San Francisco Business Times

The health care industry drives $28 billion in economy activity in San Francisco and is the city’s largest source of employment, accounting for about 20 percent of its workforce.

That’s according to a report released Tuesday by the Hospital Council of Northern and Central California. Health care employs 121,000 people in San Francisco — more than any other sector, the report said — and the industry’s payrolls account for $9.63 billion in direct labor income.
