Connecticut hospitals and health systems contributed $27.7 billion to the state and local economies in 2016, according to a new report by the Connecticut Hospital Association. They provide 104,000 jobs, nearly every one of which produces another job outside the hospital. In addition to generating $15.4 billion in local payroll in 2016, the state’s hospitals and health systems spent $10.6 billion on goods and services and $1.7 billion for capital improvements. “By investing in the future of Connecticut's hospitals and health systems, we will strengthen our health care system and our economy, put people to work, and deliver affordable care that Connecticut families deserve,” said CHA CEO Jennifer Jackson.
