Governor Rendell Shines Health Careers Week Spotlight on 8 In-Demand Occupations
Date:11/10/2008

Recognizes Award Winners; Seeks Tomorrow's Health Care Heroes

HARRISBURG, Pa., Nov. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Edward G. Rendell said Pennsylvania is working to build tomorrow's health care workforce by showcasing eight in-demand occupations during the kickoff today of Health Careers Week.

"This special week helps put middle and high school students on rewarding, real-world career paths that will benefit millions of Pennsylvanians," said Governor Rendell. "These are professional opportunities that will be in great demand in the commonwealth."

Health careers in the spotlight are dental assistants, dental hygienists, medical and clinical laboratory technologists, medical and clinical laboratory technicians, pharmacists, physical therapists, radiological technicians, and respiratory therapists.

These eight careers will comprise approximately 70,000 Pennsylvania jobs by 2014, according to "An Analysis of Allied Health Occupations in the Commonwealth," which was released in May by the Pennsylvania Center for Health Careers. The 266-page report is available at http://www.paworkforce.state.pa.us; click "About PA's Workforce System" then "PA Center for Health Careers," and "Technical Report from the Allied Health Working Group."

"Health Careers Week shows Pennsylvania's commitment to attracting a new generation of bright, energetic workers to vital careers in the health care industry, and it helps to keep our top talent here to meet the health care needs of our aging population," the Governor said.

Health care careers account for more than 500,000 of the nearly 5.8 million jobs in Pennsylvania, and the number is expected to increase to 660,000 by 2016.

During the Health Careers Week kickoff, Matthew Cain, a senior at Central Bucks West High School in Doylestown, was recognized as the statewide winner of the 2008 Student Health Care Hero Award. <
