Report Finds Significant Job Opportunities for Californians in Allied Health; Questions State's Education Capacity To Train Workers
Date:9/22/2009

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- New workforce projections show that California's allied health industry will be a key driver of economic growth in the state over the next two decades. By 2030, the allied health sector will comprise almost 1 million workers with a collective earning power of more than $116 billion in wages. At the same time, the study casts doubt on whether California's education system will be able to provide enough health workers to meet the growing demand.

The study -- conducted by Beacon Economics and funded by a grant to Fenton Communications from The California Wellness Foundation -- is the first to analyze long-term workforce projections for approximately 50 positions within the allied health field. These workers, often called the "backbone" of health care, make up 60 percent of all health jobs and include positions such as laboratory and x-ray technicians, nursing aides, respiratory therapists and medical secretaries.

The report, Help Wanted: Will California Miss Out on a Billion-Dollar Growth Industry?, forecasts changes in the state's population through 2030 to project the demand for allied health workers, who will be critical in caring for California's growing and graying population: In the next 20 years, the number of Californians over 65 will more than double, and the state will grow by 10.2 million people -- an increase equivalent to adding the state of Michigan.

"This study leaves no doubt that allied health workers will be in high demand," said Virginia Hamilton, executive director of the California Workforce Association. "And with the enormous value this workforce sector provides to the state's economy, making sure that Californians get the training they need to fill these good-paying jobs is an opportunity we can't afford to miss."
