Healthcare Adds More Than 400K Jobs in 12 Months

Healthcare employment growth continued throughout 2019 at a torrid pace, adding 402,000 jobs in the 12 months ending in October, and climbing to a total of more than 16.5 million in total employment, according to the latest data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics Current Employment Statistics. The summer of 2019 showed steady high growth each month -- in a year when the healthcare industry set a record with nearly 50,000 employment growth for one month in March. Healthcare employment has been rising steadily since the end of the recession, but it’s been on a tear since mid 2018.
