Several areas of the healthcare industry experienced steady growth in January 2013. According to MedPage Today, U.S. physician offices added 9,000 jobs last month, and hospitals hired 4,000 new staff members as well.

The January 2013 numbers reflect gradual growth in the healthcare industry that has taken place over the past few years. Recent data showed that health sector employment has increased 10.5 percent since December 2007, and the growth could continue as the U.S. economy rebounds from the economic recession of the late 2000s.??

Additionally, the drop in healthcare pricing could lead more healthcare providers to increase their staffs. January 2013 statistics revealed that healthcare spending increased 4.3 percent last year, which is a positive sign for the healthcare industry. If more firms increase their spending over the next few years, new job opportunities could become available to qualified professionals around the country.??

Healthcare IT News reports that the market for healthcare industry jobs is active, and many employers are ready to bring in new staff members in 2013.??

“Healthcare is going to scream opportunity,” healthcare industry expert Jason Lovelace told the news source. “It’s almost recession proof. The opportunities will exist.”
