Illinois hospitals and health systems generate $95.3 billion a year and an estimated 466,000 direct and indirect jobs for the state’s economy, according to a new report by the Illinois Health and Hospital Association. “Illinois hospitals and health systems serve their communities in so many ways,” said IHA President and CEO A.J. Wilhelmi. “They provide needed health care around the clock, they strengthen local economies and employ local residents, and they lead and fund initiatives to improve individual and population health. Their role is vital and truly irreplaceable in communities across the state.”
