Hospitals and health systems employed 18,300 more people in July, as U.S. jobs overall increased by 943,000, according to preliminary data released Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Health care jobs overall increased by 36,800 and remain at just under 16 million total (seasonally adjusted). Physicians, dentists and other health practitioner offices continued to add jobs, while outpatient care centers lost about 100 jobs and nursing and residential care facilities lost 13,400. Since the beginning of the pandemic, hospitals and health systems have added over 42,000 jobs, but remain below their February 2020 peak.
