The MedZilla Report for August 2009 -- Health Care Grows Another 28,000 While Hospitals And Insurers Feel Painful Pinch

With the newly available jobs created in August came sweeping changes in companies' candidate searches. Five states saw increases of five percent or more in candidate searches; California led the way with an increase of almost ten percent. New Jersey, conversely, saw the largest drop in candidate searches, with companies there slowing their activities by more than 11 percent. Significant drops also occurred in Minnesota (just over one percent), as well as Pennsylvania and Illinois (more than four percent each). Job searching by qualified applicants remained relatively flat in August, a non-trend observed by MedZilla for several months. The Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated that, in August, the number of discouraged workers — that is, individuals who are not looking for work because they feel no jobs are available for them — was at 758,000, nearly double the number a year previously. These feelings appear to have spread to the health care industry.

Despite all the new jobs being created, health systems and hospitals continued to announce layoffs, putting a damper on the good news. More and more specialty programs, such as those for individuals with developmental disabilities and substance abuse problems, have begun closing their doors due to budgetary concerns. Also, hospitals are beginning to report laying off support workers and staff from clinical units as they attempt to balance quality care while remaining solvent and able to pay their employees. Administrative units are being hard-hit as well. The biggest health care job cuts in August came from Kaiser Permanente in southern California; according to the Orange County Register, Kaiser plans to lay off 650 people in that area plus another 1,200 in northern California (Contra C
