HOSPITALS have been recruiting 1,052 new hospital employees to fill key hospital roles as the healthcare industry expands, an industry source told Bloomberg.
The hiring spree comes as some hospitals seek to cut costs and cut costs even further to cut down on the costs of staffing.
The new hires will help expand capacity to handle a growing number of patients, the source said.
“Hospitals are working hard to recruit and train new employees,” said Joe Pescado, CEO of Cimera Health, the nation’s second largest hospital system.
“It’s important for us to retain good employees who have the skills and the experience to help us grow our business.”
Healthcare is expected to grow at a faster pace in 2020 than in any year since at least 2009, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The trend has been in the works for a long time.
Hospitals are recruiting workers who can help them meet growing demand for care in an aging population and the rise of new treatments.
The U.K. has a strong workforce, but its hospitals are struggling to keep up with demand.
The number of people in the U, U.Y. and U.A.C. regions who have a bachelor’s degree is now nearly half of the total population, according a recent report from the Oxford University Centre for Economic Performance.
More than 20% of U.UK. doctors have a masters’ degree and more than half of UY. doctors are nurses.
