Health Care Hiring Rises on

Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) May 16, 2013

Health sector employment made up a sizeable portion of U.S. job growth in April, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The health industry added 19,000 jobs last month, as employers prepared to meet the anticipated growth in patients and demand for services as a result of Obamacare. This employment growth has been reflected in hiring data on

Health care employment made up a sizeable portion of U.S. employment in April, according to the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics job report. The sector added 19,000 jobs last month, marking a monthly average of 24,000 jobs per month over the past year. Demand continued to trend upward for ambulatory and emergency services, which added another 14,000 jobs in April.

One area within the sector that is seeing traction is employment related to social assistance, which added 7,000 new jobs, according to the employment report. Much of the rise in demand comes with the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which includes a Medicaid provision that expands eligibility for low income Americans. While key provisions related to Medicaid are not set to go into effect until January 2014, many hospitals and clinics that have social welfare programs are currently adding staff in preparation of the expected increase in patients. The increased need for health care workers also comes at a time when a sizeable portion of the U.S. population is aging, entering retirement, and becoming more dependent on medical services.

The BLS jobs report overwhelmingly corresponded with employment trends on, a leading job search website. Employers listed over 521,000 health care jobs on the site at the time of this release, a resounding affirmation of the national trends in the jobs report. Nearly 5,300 jobs were listed in emergency services this month, and hiring has been strongest in Texas, particularly in the cities of Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, Houston, and Arlington. With over half a million jobs currently being advertised on the site, health care employment remains a reliable area of growth in an otherwise unpredictable market.

Granted CEO, Harrison Barnes predicted that health care employment would continue to be in demand for the foreseeable future, regardless of economic factors. “Many people talk about the unpredictability of the economy and its impact on the job market. No matter what happens, it’s not going to change the fact that demand for health care employees will continue to trend upwards. You can’t escape the fact that there are seismic demographic shifts at work. Simply put, the baby boomer population is getting old, getting sick, and needing health care, and this is translating into more jobs.”

About Granted is a job search site based in Pasadena, CA. It is a part of the Employment Research Institute and owned by A. Harrison Barnes.
