Consultants and Hospital Employment Statistics

Economic Conditions Better than Other Major Industries

By Staff Reporters

horizontal-nurses1According to Richard Pizzi, on March 9th, Healthcare Finance Newsweek reported that employment at US hospitals climbed 0.14 percent in February to a seasonally adjusted 4,719,300 people.

Bureau of Labor Statistics

Responding to just issued BLS data, the number employed was 6,800 more than in January and 131,800 more than in February 2008. Without seasonal adjustments, which remove the effects of fluctuations due to seasonal events, hospitals employed 4,703,700 people in February 2009, 2,200 more than in January and 130,100 more than a year ago.

Impact on Healthcare Consultants

This was good news for financial advisors, insurance agents and accountants; medical management consultants and health economists; HIT suppliers and related DME vendors, etc.

Assessment

The news was not so good in other areas of the American economy, however, as the national unemployment rate rose from 7.6 percent to 8.1 percent. The US economy shed an additional 651,000 jobs in February 2009. But, according to Rachel Pentin-Maki; RN, MHA of www.MedicalBusinessAdvisors.com

“Employment continues to be strong in almost all aspects of the healthcare industrial complex. This includes professionals, technicians, nurses and para-professionals, as well. However, in the long-term, we believe that medicine will not attract the best and brightest young minds in the future. The economic, political and competitive demographics are just not favorable.” 

Conclusion

And so, your thoughts and comments on this Medical Executive-Post are appreciated. Is healthcare really a recession proof industry? What about those bright young minds; where will they go for professional careers, instead?

New Channel Development for Medically Focused Financial Advisors and Management Consultants*

Beta-in-Progress

By Ann Miller; RN, MHA

[Executive Director]solo-consultant3     

A New Approach

Unfortunately, this usually means that some really interesting and smart folks, who purchase our books, dictionaries, print-journal, blog or email us; may get lost in the confusion. The result is that too many great medically focused consultants that we’d love to hear about are getting lost in the shuffle. And so, we’re trying something else instead.

Tell us about your Practice

Tell us about your financial advisory practice, and you may end up being mentioned in dispatches, or featured on a separate channel that we are developing. Selection and inclusion criteria include but are not limited to the following credentials:

  • Undergraduate or Graduate degree
  • Industry acknowledged certification or designation
  • Clean CRD record
  • Clean criminal record
  • Insurance agents need not apply
  • Stock brokers need not apply
  • Fiduciaries are encouraged
  • RIAs and independent advisors are encouraged
  • Published authors or educators are encouraged
  • Mission statement on physician niche focus required.

Assessment

So, if you want our readers to pay attention to your financial advisory practice or firm, this will get it into a systematic review process starring our crack staff.  Otherwise you may face the peril of lost notoriety to other non-specific niches; or referral sources.

Publisher’s Note: The inclusion or rejection decision is final; but not set in stone and our terms and conditions may change without notice; the beta project may also be cancelled at any time. We reserve the right to reject anyone, at any time, for any reason or no reason at all. This is a beta project-in-development. The advisors listed are not affiliated or endorsed by iMBA Inc., in any way. This is an advertisement opportunity only.

*NOTE: There is a $120 annual fee for this listing service. It is waived for subscribers of our two volume companion print journal, upon request. www.HealthcareFinancials.com
