Missouri hospitals support nearly 310,000 jobs and generate more than $27 billion for the state’s economy, according to research released this week by the Missouri Hospital Association. “Hospitals and health care underpin the economies of the communities they serve,” said MHA President and CEO Herb Kuhn. “The hospital workforce, capital investments in buildings and equipment, and purchases of supplies and services, all ripple through the state’s economy to create additional value.”
