Hospitals and health systems added 10,800 jobs in October, while U.S. jobs overall increased by 261,000, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Total health care jobs grew by over 52,000 in October to a seasonally adjusted 16.6 million. Nursing and residential care facility employment also grew by 11,100 in October. While the October data show that hospitals and health systems continue to prioritize filling critical positions to care for their patients, they continue to experience unprecedented workforce pressures and historic inflationary cost pressures that have outpaced any growth in both volume and revenue.
