Hospital Hiring Riding Yearlong Momentum

Halfway through 2015, hospitals are on pace to be the leader for hiring in the healthcare industry.

A Forbes column illuminates the recent boom hospitals have experienced in staffing, gaining employees for nearly a year straight.

The current trend isn't just a return to normal after the economic struggles brought on by the recession, either. While the recession impacted hiring at hospitals -- the industry largely plateaued through 2009 and 2010 -- the recent jumps in hiring greatly outpace the sector's steady climb from 2005 through 2008.

Per the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), roughly 4.9 million are employed in hospital jobs as of June 2015. That number was around 4.3 million a decade ago, but the difference now is that the one-year growth matches gains made over more two years from 2005 to 2007.

Hospital hiring's sharp, upward trajectory is in stark contrast from early 2014, when this particular sector was the slowest part of the otherwise thriving healthcare industry to pick up in employment.

So why the quick jump?

One reason is a reported 1.8% uptick in U.S. health spending, up to 5.8% from 4% in 2007 through 2013, as a result of more Americans having health coverage.

Hospitals are now meeting the demands more patients bring, and these jobs cover the full gamut: records technicians, nurses, administrative staff are all in greater demand for hospitals than during and just after the recession.
