New Jersey hospitals contributed $23.6 billion and more than 150,000 jobs to the state economy in 2017, according to the latest report by the New Jersey Hospital Association. “Healthcare is a critical part of New Jersey’s economic infrastructure,” said NJHA President and CEO Cathy Bennett. “The $23.6 billion that hospitals and health systems contribute to the state economy ripples throughout all communities via jobs, income taxes paid by employees and goods and services purchased from other businesses. And most importantly, our hospitals are open to their communities 24/7/365 to provide the care we need.”
